Installing site as Progressive Web App does not create launcher icon

Bug Description

Using Epiphany snap version 3.38.6-2-gc27a8180e1 (latest stable) on Ubuntu 20.04.3 (GNOME 3.36.8).

Navigating to a page and selecting "Install site as Web Application..." does not result in the expected behaviour of creating a launcher icon in GNOME. The web page does show in the list at Epiphany's own Application Manager, and can be removed using the GUI. However there is no way to open the web application or use it as intended.

I have also tested the behaviour using the DEB version of Epiphany, and the bug is not present.
