For the last several versions of 5.X, after upgrading LO, the Finder icons for all ODF files have gone blank (picture attached). This is a common enough problem that there are several discussion boards in which it has been asked and answered:
(there are more)
In the past, I could clear the icon cache in OS X, but with "Sierra" (v10.12), that area of the computer is now locked, so the workaround is no longer functional.
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Look in Finder.
Finder Icons of ODF (and any other file set to load in LO) are blank (generic Mac icons: white with folded corner).
ODF icons should appear with colour-coded icons: blue for Writer, green for Calc, etc.
User Profile Reset: No (it's not a problem within LO)
Colour-coded icons are visible in (a) the "Icon" view in Finder (rather than "List"), and (b) when my laptop is plugged into a bigger screen (i.e., my home monitor instead of the monitor on the laptop).

Blank icons in Finder.
This is what ODF icons look like in Finder after an LO upgrade.
Can not confirm this.
Icon view, and list view of ODF documents show in Finder with the ODF generic icons by document type.
