Several places when the mouse is hovering over an item, the description/title of the the item changes to look a "link" (color changes, it gets underlined).  I'd then expect that the "link" would do something on single(left)click just like in a browser.

But it does nothing.

How to repeat:
An image will come shortly.

Suggested fix:
Don't provide "links" doing nothing.

Fixed in 5.2

fixed in repository. now the list-items don't show the underline-on-hover effect anymore as they need a double-click to invoke an action upon them.
will be included in 5.2.11

An entry has been added to the 5.2.11 changelog:

In the Home screen Workspace, in the central panels listing connections, models and server instances, the items in the panels appeared to be rendered as links. However, clicking on these “links” had no effect, and the items could only be loaded by double-clicking.

MySQL Workbench has been changed to remove the link effect, and these items can only be loaded by double-clicking.
