After starting first window - shell or gnome extensions - can't click or type in any way inside any apps. Only way to see windows is to click logout - then everything waits for me to click X of their windows.

Computer is currently unusable because of that.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
install gnome shell 40 and rest of the updates today.

Seems that pressing window button breaks something and alt+f2 and typing "r" helps. Not using wayland. Trying to find some logs that could help ... nothing so far.

Still no logs that explain my disaster, but!

I managed to disable "windowNavigator" extension and that solved my problem... at least for now.
