Hi! I recently faced this strange issue.
When I edit the image and want to see it in full screen mode, the colors change.
When I export the image to jpg it also has different colors than the edited ones. 

This means the colors I see when I edit are different from this what I see in Full screen mode and what I export. Full screen mode colors match completely the exported image.

I am using Lightroom Classic 2019 8.3.1 and Mac OS Mojave 10.14.5

Can somebody support me on this please?

I use Classic 8.3.1, Mojave. But I have experienced this problem with the previous operating system as well: I work on a file in Develop. When I go back to Library, the file I just processed in Develop, where it looks bright and sharp, shows in Library much less bright. This is a rare occurrence but happens occasionally with star shots for example. Adobe has not had an answer for this.

Star shots is probably key here. Lots of sharpening, texture, clarity, noise reduction or similar? Zoom into 1:1 in both Library and Develop and compare and I think you'll find them the same. It's the Develop Fit view that isn't quite so accurate with extreme settings, because it has to update fast.

Two troubleshooting steps:

1. Uncheck the option Preferences > Performance > Use Graphics Processor.

2. See if your display profile is corrupt or incompatible with LR:
