On 77 Nightly, most of the sharing icons in the macOS are not displaying for me. This creates visual imbalance, and also makes it challenging to scan the list and find which option you're looking to choose.

I likely got the component for this wrong, but it's not entirely clear where it belongs. ni?dolske to help find the right home.

Oh sorry I misread that as the App buttons...

Moving this to General for now since it has no house...

The console logs the following error for the icons that don't draw properly:

I have a patch that fixes this and (I believe) also maintains the improvements that were intended in bug 1561756, where this issue was introduced. I'll have :mstange look this over on Phabricator.

Stephen, this is marked as P1 affecting 77, would it be a safe uplift to beta? Thanks
