Use XF 2.1 tags ;)

Less:
.p-navEl a[data-nav-id='home']:before {.m-faContent("@{fa-var-home}");}

@bousaid You're right. Its a bit too much. This is enough.
Less:
.p-navEl a:before {
    .m-faBase();
    display:inline-block;
    text-align:center;
    margin-right:5px;
}

I use this
Less:
.p-navEl-link{                            
    &:before{.m-faBase();
    .m-faContent("@{fa-var-question-square}\20");
    }
    &[data-nav-id="home"]{&:before{.m-faContent("@{fa-var-home}\20");}}
    &[data-nav-id="forums"]{&:before{.m-faContent("@{fa-var-comments}\20");}}
}

With your hardcoded PRO you couldn't use the options in ACP the switch between light, regular and pro. But your default content is a good idea.. ;)

Why did you set \20 ? Is this for margin?

&[data-nav-id="home"]{&:before{.m-faContent("@{fa-var-home}\20");}}
The second & is too much. It is like an placeholder for using the same content in many rows. My opinion.. :unsure:

The more i read, search and test, the more i found out the little things in LESS and XF2.1

We use almost too much code. E.g.
Wrong: .m-faContent("@{fa-var-home}");
Right: .m-faContent(@fa-var-home);

Thanks for this resource. I have the icons appearing in the navigation bar on desktop. However I want to add them to the mobile as well. I am trying

Code:
.offCanvasMenu a[href*="/forums/Australia"]:before {.m-faContent("@{fa-var-globe}");}
Which is finding the right spot in the menu before the Australia category, but it's not displaying the FA icon - it's the missing icon box. Is it the "m."?
