Well, it *seems* to work:

I installed my epiphany 1.3.8 package without mozilla and
changed /etc/ to include /opt/mozilla-
firefox/lib/firefox-0.9.3. Then I started epiphany with this line:
MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=/opt/mozilla-firefox/lib/firefox-0.9.3 epiphany

epiphany started fine and about: shows the firefox about page. The funny
part is, epiphany 1.3.8 didn't even support firefox.
