is there a way to go to the first (or any) inline comment so that I can see the widget on the right to navigate through them.
The reason to do this is to see if there are any inline comments without scrolling through the entire document. Which is pain for large documents.
I believe currently it's not possible with Confluence native inline comments. But you can try the Talk add-on. It has the capability you're interested in.
With Talk, you can click a button to expand the sidebar with Talk comments:
And then click another button to scroll down to the first comment:
Talk also has other features that are not available in Confluence native inline comments, such as working with inline comments in edit mode, viewing all inline comments at a time on a sidebar, setting default Space comments viewing permissions, setting permissions for specific comments.

A Cloud addon was recently released that would help with this:
Not only do you get a counter at the top to see how many unresolved inline comments are in a page, but you can also click to jump directly to the first comment. You can even search (run a report) to see all unresolved comments filtered by space and/or commenting user. For longer pages, there's also an overview report that shows just the headings and the commented text, so you can get a quick overview of what's on any particular page.
