So I see the same issue as you do, there's something wrong with the DNG. Did you convert from a proprietary raw and might you have that original?When I toggle between Library and Develop, I see it update. I've tried reconverting the DNG (no good) and I opened it in ACR and see the same initial rendering as shown in Library (Darker). Save Metadata and Preview command in LR doesn't do anything either. So it sounds like this isn't happening with all files, just a few of these DNGs? We need to know ...

A similar issue was reported in the Photoshop Family forum at the below link. It's due to using using Smart Previews for editing. The solution is to uncheck the below Preferences option, restart LR, and make sure the original file is available if on an external drive.

Had the same issue on LR6.14 with an underexposed DNG. Found it unaltered between Library and develop when using 1:1. Found it entirely resolved when I removed the preference for "Use smart Previews instead of Origianls"

Thanks for the hint.

Question: ONLY this one file or ALL files?

Just to clarify the above darker Library screenshot is what I see in both the Library and Develop modules. The brighter Develop module screenshot is the one that's actually incorrect! Exported files also look like the Library module screenshot and the same as my Library module and Develop module rendering.

I just had this same problem.  I have been printing and calibrated my monitor to get the colors correct so that the prints would match the display.  Then in Lightroom I was editing and seeing the image much more saturated than in the Library view.  When I export the image matches what is in Lirbary.  Also it was a pain to have to keep editing in Develop and then checking in Lirbary to get the image the way I wanted.

 

I found it is caused by the 'Use Graphics Processor' , if I unclick this, then the Library image matches the Develop image.  This looks like it is a bug in Lightroom.  Lightroom should use the Active Display Color Profile when it uses the Graphics Processor.  Unchecking the graphics processor may make performance worse when editing.

the same here :(.

when I turn on Use Graphic Processor, the colors in Develop are more saturated...

 

update: when I turn the color profile to Adobe RGB, the colors are the same in develop and library no matter the GPU is turned on or off... but when I switch profile to my color calibration, the develop is more saturated.

I was having a similar issue where all my photos were showing as much more saturated in the Library module than the Develop module (and were exporting as they showed in the Library module). This suggestion to toggle off 'Use Graphics Processor' worked to fix it for me, now the image looks the same in both modules.

I have the same issue that you describe, the image in the Develop module is way more sturated than in the Library module.  However, for me, my exports are matching what's seen in the Develop module...not the Library module. 
So weird!
When I turn off the "Use Graphics Processor" setting, the Develop module changes to match the Library module.  Setting it to Auto or Custom have the same effect.

** UPDATE **

I was able to resolve this by reprofiling my monitor...which I think is something that was mentioned above.  I used a ColorMunki Display device to do this.  I know this does not help those of you that do not calibrate your monitors.  However, your comuter has a profile for your monitor regardless of whether or not you calibrate it.  So this does suggest that the issue people are experiancing may be related to a corrupt profile for your monitor.  You might be able to get new or updated profiles from the manufacturer of your monitor or else where online.

 

As a side note though, if you are doing work that requires accurate colors I highly recomend calibrating your monitor.

I have been experiencing this problem for at least a year or two now and agree it's disappointing to have heard nothing from Adobe on the bug. The only solution I've found is to simply quit Lightroom and reopen. After that, the image looks the same in the Library and Develop modules, confirming that this is not stemming from monitor calibration or color profile.

I was having an issue like this.  It had absolutely NOTHING to do with profiles.  For me it was the quick develop preset got set to "custom" somehow.  When I set it back to "default" it started matching again.  Only posting becuase other people coud be reading this thread looking for other possible causes.  A mismatch between quick develop setting in Library module, and the color profile in Develope module could definitely cause differences.

I sent the better part of an hour with an Adobe tech the other day.  Nothing seemed to work until she suggested that I create a new catalog.  I then imported on folder of images and the problem disapeared (in the new catalog).  Now all I have to do is find an efficent way of reimporting the contents of my original catalog into the new one.
