Currently when a track is being paused, Elisa always disables the next and previous track buttons. This behavior is kinda counterproductive, I haven't seen any media players other than Elisa doing this. Just because the current track is paused it doesn't mean that jumping backwards/forwards on the current playlist becomes an invalid action to do. Elisa should only disable these buttons when it's at the start/end of the current playlist.

Yeah, that's weird. Why *do* we do that, anyway? Notably, the in-app and global Next and Previous shortcuts still work, so this seems like just a bug. I'll fix it.
ElisaApplication.playerControl.skipForwardControlEnabled and ElisaApplication.playerControl.skipBackwardControlEnabled seem to be getting set to false inappropriately, but they aren't even blocking the shortcuts anyway... :/

Don't unnecessarily disable back and forward buttons when paused
You might still want to move backwards or forward when the player is
