Bug Description

I run Firefly media server on a server. Firefly shares itś control panel website with Avahi. Epiphany picks this up in itś nearby sites bookmark menu.
When you click the bookmark Epiphany tries but fails to open the following url:
http://fe80::20c:76ff:fe4d:d1e2:3689/ *
Opening the following url works:

This is what Avahi Discovery says about the control panel:
Service Type: _http._tcp
Service Name: Music on myserver
Domain Name: local
Interface: wlan0 IPv6
Address: myserver.local/fe80::20c:76ff:fe4d:d1e2:3689
TXT Database ID = DA443F12
TXT iTSh Version = 131073
TXT Machine Name = Music on myserver
TXT Version = 196610
TXT txtvers = 1
TXT Password = false
TXT Machine ID = DA443F12
TXT mtd-version = svn-1696
TXT ffid = 7693f757

I think Epiphany should switch to using Avahi domain names for nearby sites, but properly creating IPV6 urls would also be a step towards fixing this.

* The correct form of this IPV6 url should be: http://[fe80::20c:76ff:fe4d:d1e2]:3689/
