Problems wit openSuse "15.1 GNOME": crash after login

yesterday I tried to install openSuse Leap 15.1 with GNOME on my laptop LifeBook E8410. After installation I logged in, and suddenly a couple of seconds after I became this message on the screen:
Click image for larger version

Actually, that time I just wanted to start "Firefox"... After logging out and logging in again I could not reach desktop - my mouse stayed just on the empty screen...

Actually, I saw this message quite regularly yesterday.. Network settings, Yast... looks like everything causes "Oh no, something went wrong"...

Does anyone know the reason for it?

Thanks in advance,

It's also possible that Plymouth, which is a normal part of installation, is interfering with operation of a video driver and needs to be disabled or removed. Adding plymouth.enable=0 on the kernel cmdline in the same manner as nomodeset can be removed at the above URL can be done to see if it helps. If it does, it can be made permanent, also in same manner as that URL describes, or Plymouth can simply be removed:
sudo zypper rm plymouth
