New styling of admin table pagination links in WordPress 5.1

This CSS change improves the color contrast ratio for better accessibility and improves consistency across the admin screens. The pagination links are now styled like the standard WordPress buttons. By default, they have a lighter background color. The background color will no longer change to blue on hover and focus.

Plugins and themes should not be affected by this change unless they are re-using the .tablenav and .tablenav-pages CSS classes. All plugin and theme developers should verify that this change does not affect them.
