Mysterious ghost background image

Was editing photos in LR Classic and noticed a very odd faint ghost background image that kept appearing on many of my image files in a collection. The ghost image seemed to be an image of a Facebook screen. I did have Chrome open at the same time as LR. I did a test and exported one of my edited images to my HD and sure enough the ghost image was still there. Anybody ever experience such and oddity?

If this doesn't help we need more informations about your environment. 

Which operating system do you use? 

Which version of Lightroom do you use? 

Please post the exact version and not only phrases as "recent", "latest" and so on. 

 

If you have only Lightroom opened do you also see this "ghost image"?

If so, what does it look like in camera?

Was the original photo RAW or JPEG?

If JPEG, how does it look outside if LrC?
