For no reason in particular, LR started to show my name as seen below. I have no idea how to fix it. When I log in to my account, it just has first and lastname without the "%20" in it. Does anyone know how to fix this?
Thanks so much!

Thank you for your patience.
After not using lightroom classic for a few weeks and doing some updates I noticed that my name has a %20 added in between first and last names. See attached screenshots. This isn't editable or visible on my creative cloud app or logged in online. Please advise on a fix.
Lightroom main panel has two glitches on my computer. I tried finding a similar issue on this forum as well as on the internet with no luck.
My PC is HP Spectre X360 with 16GB ram.
Issue 1: As I move the cursor over the folder icons (>) to select a subfolder. All these icons dissapear.
Issue 2: The Lightroon classic log always overlaps the drive name.
My Adobe profile name displays as "First Last" but Lightroom is now displaying "First%20Last". Since the account profile name is constructed from the "First" and "Last" values this is definitely a problem in the Lightroom display rendering.
A bug fixed in todays LrC update v11.5
Moderators, @Rikk Flohr: Photography, please merge with the existing bug:
This just appeared for me yesterday for the first time. Adobe ID website shows my name correctly as "Michał Nowak". Get your act together Adobe.

Update to 11.5
I use LR Classic v9 on my pc which runs Windows 11. I have a single catalogue which I update weekly.
When importing photos from an sd card into LR yesterday the import dialogue would not let me choose which folder to import to and then the programme froze. Today, when logging into LR it showed my user name incorrectly in the top left corner and my catalogue as empty. (My user name is Ronald Hooberman but it showed it as Ronald%20Hooberman). I tried to open the master catalogue but a window came up stating "Lightroom cannot use the catalogue named Master Catalogue Lr9-v10 because it is not writable and cannot be opened".
Can anyone help please?

@Ronald Hooberman, as you can see, your post got merged into the thread for the "%20" bug.
"but a window came up stating "Lightroom cannot use the catalogue named Master Catalogue Lr9-v10 because it is not writable and cannot be opened".
This problem is almost certainly unrelated to the "%20" bug. I recommend you start a new thread describing your symptoms (omitting the "%20" issue), which will make it more likely people will respond with relevant help.
Thanks, Rikk! Update back then did the trick.
