It is getting pretty ridiculous that according to http://bridge.qodeinteractive.com/change-log/ the last update to Font Awesome was August 20, 2015. That is almost 4 years ago!
How long could it possibly take to update "includes/font_awesome/font-awesome.php" and then update the files in "framework/admin/css/font-awesome/" and "css/font-awesome/"? The last two are simply from the zip downloadable fontawesome.com.
I've attached an updated font-awesome.php that brings everything up to Font Awesome 5.9.0.
Attached files: font-awesome.php
/framework/lib/qode.icons/qode.fontawesome.php also needed to be updated.
And I see now that switching to Font Awesome 5 breaks existing Font Awesome 4 icons, so perhaps that is why Qode hasn't updated Bridge or qode.icons... but, you can follow what I've posted here if you want to move to Font Awesome 5 manually and can go update all your site icons after.
