Some icons does not work

Lots of icons work, but some are not. For example this one: https://fontawesome.com/icons/fly?style=brands

Or this one: https://fontawesome.com/icons/hotjar?style=brands

This one does not work too: https://fontawesome.com/icons/gem?style=regular

Those are from a newer version of FA than what phpBB currently ships with (4.7.0).

BTW my forum members love this extension from first day :)

The FA assets appear to be located in the assets/css and assets/fonts directories in the phpBB root, so you should be able to replace those files with the latest version downloaded from the Font Awesome website. This assumes your forum isn't using a CDN to load assets.

Can you help me update the FA manually? It won't cause any bugs/problems? Where can I check if CDN ?
Downloaded fontawesome-free-5.0.2. What's next?

I don't recommend modifying the phpBB files unless you know what you are doing. There are some differences between FA 4 and 5 that might break compatibility with your theme or other extensions. It's probably best to stick with the FA 4 icons for now.
