It's happen after last gnome-shell update yesterday.
Desktop is unoperable by mouse, I can run applications only by keyboard :(

I can confirm the issue.
Comment 4 Uwe Köcher 2016-03-10 04:06:07 EST
So, after downgrading several packages, I found that the defective update is for me the "mutter" package.

The original action of dnf was:

Upgraded mutter-3.18.2-1.fc23.x86_64                                    @updates
    Upgrade         3.18.3-1.fc23.x86_64                                    @updates

After downgrading (dnf downgrade mutter) to mutter-3.18.1-4.fc23.x86_64 everything looks normal (mouse pointer is visible on gnome login shell as well after login on desktop menus).
