[Libreoffice-ux-advise] Remove the Navigator button below the scrollbar in Writer

I created that patch, so let me also share my opinion.

The scrollbar is something which height/width depends on the OS and 
visual theme used. So there are issues where the scrollbar is too small 
and the widgets are displayed wrongly [1].

Of course there is a use case for the Navigation buttons being quickly 
accessible, but I don't think the right place for them is below the 
scrollbar. There is for example already a toolbar which has the 
navigation buttons (forward and back, see View->Toolbars->Navigation) 
and we could easily add the "Navigation" button there also. Or we could 
think about adding it to the statusbar (I would prefer the first).
