Description

The Customizer only allows you to click internal, front-end links within a preview to navigate to URLs you can customize:
https://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/trunk/src/wp-admin/js/customize-controls.js#L2110

Clicking on an external link from the live preview pane fails silently. To help avoid confusion, we could display a notice to alert when someone clicks on an external link in a live preview:

⚠ You can only preview internal, front-end links in the customizer.

Here is a past description of how a customizer notice could work from @westonruter: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/30677#comment:7 (different use case, but the part about how the alert might work is relevant)

#29098 provides a general mechanism for sending back error codes/messages.
