I opened my gmail account this morning and the button icons at the top are missing. I can scroll the mouse and the text icon pops up but I want the icons visible again. How do I do that?

Have the exact same problem, and all of the buttons next to send when writing an email are also missing. Tested using safari and firefox, result in the same situation. I had to resolve to hovering on the missing icon to see it's tooltip.

Same issue.  I have to swap themes in order for it to work again.

I would be surprised if a Gmail theme (Settings->Themes) could cause this.   Be sure to use the in-product "Send feedback" link to report which theme you were using to Google.
