It's just the preview; the file is unaffected. Toggle the preview box and it should clear itself. It's a curious glitch that has been with us for a while. I've seen it myself. But as bugs go, this is one I can live with.
I would never recommend "convert to working RGB". It's a time-bomb. Any gamut clipping happening in that conversion is irreversible and you can't get it back! The only option guaranteed to never damage your files is "preserve embedded profiles". This is the default, and for good reason.
To keep track of your profiles easily, set the notification area at the bottom left of the image window. This way you always see at a glance what the profile is.
You're right! It is just in the preview. I was reluctant to accept the conversion. But that is a bug that should be rectified. Very confusing.
BTW - Are you Adobe Staff? I was a beta tester for Photoshop 1.0, and a few subsequent versions. I was also invited to Adobe for Alpha testing for the UI. Had to leave the program due to time constraints. What is the best current channel to suggest feature requests, bugs etc? (I used to have a direct line to the product mngrs)
Just a user like you. For feature requests and bug reports, the place to go is https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family
The thing about Photoshop's color settings is that you shouldn't do anything there unless you know what you're doing and why you're doing it. The default settings are safe and can't really go entirely wrong - but the things you can do there can potentially cause a lot of damage. Tread carefully, it's a minefield.
