I am using the Quickmapservices plugin with a a Google satelite basemap so the project has is set to EPSG:3857 - WGS 84 / Pseudo-Mercator. My vector data, which is in EPSG:4326 - WGS 84 appears to line up correctly on the basemap, but when I look at the coordinates box in the status bar, the coordinates are way off of where they should be. I am near the equator if that makes any difference.

Coordinates off

    In the attached picture there is nothing wrong with the coordinates. EPSG:4326 [long, lat] coordinate [-79.878546, 0.719538] is EPSG:3857 [x,y] coordinate [-8892039.07,80100.71], which is in Ecuador. – TomazicM Jul 22 '19 at 21:36
