Try to install www/epiphany-extensions, maybe it has extension to allow
open inside epiphany. If it does not work then install www/mozplugger. I
remember when I was work on WEBPLUGINS and surpised to see mozplugger will
making evince and abiword to open inside the browser. There has one more
plugin that does similar, but I forgot what's name of plugin in ports tree.
