That’s normal and means that your computer cached the old image. Your profile has a bit of code added to tell computers to not cache images so you can see that your profile photo was successfully uploaded, but other areas of the site don’t have that code. I could add it to more areas but it would slow the site down from having to re-load all the images on every page. Refreshing the page sometimes fixes it. Opening the image URL and refreshing that page will definitely fix it,

You’ll also notice this happening on other services like Facebook messenger; if a friend changes their profile photo, it sometimes doesn’t change in messenger right away because it’s cached for performance reasons.
