[Gnome 3.36] Apps in drawer disappeared + DE crash

Hi! Gnome 3.36 update just arrived -- and right after all app icons in app drawer are gone. Plus selecting "Frequent" option now crashes DE. Reboooted multiple times in a hope that it will start working properly.
Where to start troubleshooting? Thank you in advance :wink:

I reset Gnome to default after recent update, I do prefer Gnome Adwaita dark theme more then Manjaro so I removed everything Gnome related in /Home and remove all the Manjaro gnome settings and packages, there used to be Vanilla Gnome in repo, it is still there but does not work anymore.

Disabling UserTheme extension fixed this

I had the same issue. I specifically had to disable dash-to-dock in Gnome Tweaks

It did not solve for me.

Disabling Appfolders Management extension solved it for me.
