XF 1.x Post Control CSS question

I see that the public controls hide the FA icons on mobile (FlatAwesome+). How is that done? I don't see a aria-hidden="true" tag being used. I use a Bookmarks plugin and I want to implement the same code to hide that icon on mobile for consistency. I'm just not sure how to achieve it.

Really enjoying this theme by the way.

Currently, we're using CSS to show the icons using :before so it's kind of hard to get them correct in all scenarios without the text. I'm looking into changing the approach on this slightly so you can have just icons instead of text only.

I love the idea of icons only in the public controls for mobile, but at the same time I recently read on the FontAwesome site that AdBlock 2 is now blocking FA icons, which would be a major problem if those links resolved to only icons on mobile obviously. Might be too risky to go that route.

Any time a third party add-on interferes with something simple like Font Icons then I don't really see it as a problem with the FA side of things. I believe some of those ad block plugins are even allowing companies to pay for their ads to bypass the blocker which isn't right in my eyes. Sometimes you almost have to turn on exceptions for certain sites.
