It doesn't look like you're using KDE but probably Cinnamon. Correct? Dolphin runs best on KDE as it is part of that desktop environment. Mixing up Gtk and Qt applications can be a pain with themes; as you're trying to use an application built with the Qt toolkit on a desktop environment written for Gtk toolkit. The issue you're having is probably related to the icon theme. It may be solvable; if you changed to a different icon theme, change back to the default. Try using Dolphin from a new user account. I have no other suggestions but to recommend you use KDE if you want to use Dolphin.

If other users with the same problem stumble across this issue, I have a fix for Dolphin's weirdness in Fix no icons showing in Dolphin on 18 / 18.1 Cinnamon, MATE or Xfce
