I'm getting notifications that some application is crashed and was automatically reported. How can I inspect what was reported and where?

All crashes are reported in "Automatic Bug Reporting Tool" (or just ABRT).

Open Activities and start to type "ABRT". Click the icon that will pop up to start ABRT and see the detected crashes

Thanks. I see only one report for google-chrome-stable which is 'cannot be reported'. Where are all other crashes that were reported automatically?

As far as I know, there is no other place / tool gathering crash reports. Everything is tracked via ABRT. It is possible that your issues were related just to one bug in Chrome browser so that's why you see only one problem there. Actually there is one more tool: SELinux - This is not tool for for bug hunting but it detects security violations in your system. Please check what's detected there (I looked at mine and found some Chrome related reports there, maybe that's your case as well)

The Chrome ABRT issue cannot be reported because it is not Fedora product but 3rd party. ABRT submits crashes for Fedora maintained applications only. You can still use the crash report and captured logs for bug reporting with the Chrome developers / maintainers.

Cannot connect to X server. I guess there is also some problem with wayland interoperability of this tool.
