When I load Google Sheets, many of the icons do not appear as seen in the attached screenshot. I have no idea what might be causing this.

You need to provide steps and a doc that we can access to see if we can replicate the issue. I can load Google Sheets. see screenshot

1. The issue is not loading the window in your screenshot. It is loading the icons in the Google Sheets toolbar that I included in a screenshot in my original message. I've attached a full screen screenshot.

2. There aren't really any steps to explain. When I open a new or existing Google Sheets document, the icons in the toolbar are not visible.

"icons in the toolbar are not visible" was the info missing from your description.  ;-))

I put sheets in full screen mode and it looks like your issue. Please verify.

No. That is not my issue.

I don't have the toolbar icons hidden. If you look at my screenshot, you will see that about 10% of the icons are visible in their correct position.

Is the issue with one of your docs or does it also happen with a blank sheet example in GS?

Such small icons are usually supplies by a special iconic font, so if you do not see those icons then it is likely that you are blocking remote fonts that are downloaded from the server.

Make sure you allow pages to choose their own fonts.

  • Settings -> General -> Language and Appearance -> Fonts -> Advanced
    [X] "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above"

If you use extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) that can block content (Adblock Plus, NoScript, DuckDuckGo PE, Disconnect, Ghostery, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin) always make sure such extensions do not block content.

You can check the Web Console (Tools -> Web Developer) for messages about blocked content and about the presence of mixed or unsafe content.

You can check the Network Monitor to see if content is blocked or otherwise fails to load.

If necessary use "Ctrl+F5" or "Ctrl+Shift+R" (Mac: Command+Shift+R) to reload the page and bypass the cache to generate a fresh log.
