The kind of QuickBooks behavior about missing vendors and customers can be fixed by some basic troubleshooting steps.
Let's try using a private browser or incognito window as an initial step to fixing this issue. This will eliminate any browser history that may cause a glitch inside QuickBooks. You can refer to the following keyboard shortcuts below:
If it works, close out the private window and clear the cache on the regular browser. This will remove previously-stored browsing data that might have caused the issue. Otherwise, you can try other supported browsers to help narrow down the cause of this behavior.

I am having the same Issue. If I clear all filters, I cant see any of my customers or vendors.
Filtering by open balances for example shows a few. As soon as filters are cleared, customers/vendors disappear.
I am hoping for an answer that is not some canned troubleshooting steps. The problem feels like its on intuits side.
