Wouldn't it be nice to have a "back/forward" button in script editor?

Yes, quite different from the original problem statement, and more
reflective of my own needs as well.
Right now I make liberal use of the "Lookup Definition" item in the
context menu, but that only goes one way.
I once considered making a static analysis tool that would provide a
list of handlers with specific line numbers for a flow of execution.
Not surprisingly, I also decided the time it would take to do that would
exceed the time it would save me. :)
