There are three behaviors this PR changes:

  1. when onboarding, after clicking through the analytics modal the url bar will focus
  2. after creating a new request, the URL bar will focus
  3. after switching to a new request, the URL bar will focus (note, that this (logically speaking) also means that it will focus when switching to a new request when there wasn't one previously, such as from the dashboard).

closes INS-1308
changelog(Improvements): URL bar will now autofocus when interacting with new requests or switching between requests

I tried and tried to make it work before, but I kept getting errors (because you have to use the unsafe legacy lifecycle methods) including `unstable_flushDiscreteUpdates: Cannot flush updates when React is already Rendering` and `RequestPane.getSnapshotBeforeUpdate(): A snapshot value (or null) must be returned.`

It's already stateless, so a good candidate to switch now since it blocked me.
