XF 1.x Adding fontawesome icons to nav

aquarium

Customer
Here's a weird one even though I'm using a custom and non-custom PE style using the awesome XenBase framework. I have one addon that seems to show a ::before tag before navigation items. Another does not show the tag even though it's from the same developer.

Code:
<a href="https://mysite.com/gallery/" class="navLink">Gallery</a>
::before == $0
I'm not sure why that before is being generated for one addon but not for another. It seems like the menu item is being generated in the navigation template so what works for one should work for the other. The fontawesome icons are added by simply adding this line into CUSTOM.CSS

Code:
.navTabs .navTab.forums .navLink:before
{
   content: "\f0e6";
}
Hmmm... I'm stumped! This should be simple... I know I'm missing something somewhere....
