There are a few workarounds below that you can do.

Try clearing your browser cache or use Incognito mode and if you have issues on steam mobile apps then try clearing Steam app cache.

Additionally, you can try by going to Steam dashboard > By friends > View Players.

Why can’t I see all recent players on Steam?

You may not see all recent players on steam if they have set any privacy.

So if you see a few players missing from Steam recently played with a list then probably those players have some privacy.
