This does not sound like a feature request but a bug report to me.

If any XPI extension is supposed to be supported by browsers using Gecko
(like Epiphany) but it does not work, it's a bug in that browser. So
please feel free to file a bug report in

GARNOME is a GNOME distribution, it's not our duty to fix any bug in
apps shipping with GARNOME.

That said, I don't think we should even ship that extension, if it would
just work. Adding extensions by default again is the apps (and its
maintainers) duty/decision. Even more, if the extension can be installed
by a user without rebuilding anything.

Please talk to the Epiphany developers about adding features to
