Question: Safari download "icon" appears

When I download a file in Safari, a transparent gray-and-white "Safari" icon appears and remains on top of all other windows. It remains after I quit Safari, and only disappears after I reboot my Mac. This started happening in OS 10.12 and continues now that I have upgraded to 10.13.3. See screen shot.

Restart the computer holding down the command - option/alt - P - R keys before the gray screen appears. Continue to hold until you hear the startup chime for the second time. You may need to do this 2-3 times.
