Comment (by hellofromTonya):

 The URL is correct. However, the `?styles=open` functionality, which
 automatically opens the Styles panel from that URL, was accidentally
 removed. It's been restored and fixed in Gutenberg (see the
 [https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/pull/38093 merged PR] and
 [https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/38090 closed issue]).

 Is this bug critical and a blocker for the final release? In other words,
 does this bug warrant a RC4?
 [https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C02RQBWTW/p1642625062335000 From
 yesterday's dev chat], there's consensus that it does not.

 * Clicking the link takes the user to the Site Editor where one more click
 opens the Styles panel.
 * The user is not left in an usable or broken state, nor does it cause a
 fatal error or break the website.

 Granted, it's not an ideal nor a perfect experience. But on its own, it
 does not warrant a RC4. That said, if another issue is reported that does
 rise to the level of critical blocker, then the fix for this issue will be
 bundled into RC4.

 What to do with this ticket? To ensure it stays on the radar in case a RC4
 happens, let's leave this issue open and in 5.9 for visibility. Then
 before the 24 hour code freeze, close it as reported upstream (as the fix
 will be backported from Gutenberg for 5.9.1).
