Screenshooter always taking screenshot of the desktop

I have recently installed fedora with xfce and I noticed that xfce4-screenshooter always takes the screenshot of the desktop without icons, actually there is only the background desktop picture in the resulting screenshot. It is the same with Scrot (scrot -s), sometimes it happens that the resulting screenshot is a picture of those widows that were opened in that area some time ago.
xorg-x11-server crashed 45x 2 weeks ago (I suppose shortly after installation), I wonder if it might be connected.

Everything worked fine on another computer (Toshiba) on debian with xfce. Does someone know what the reason might be and how to solve it?

I have fedora 5.2.11-200.fc30.x86_64 running on Lenovo ThinkPad E590, Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8265U CPU @ 1.60GHz, 8GB RAM
