Bug Description

Epiphany in 16.04 LTS and 16.10 has a "New Incognito Window" action in the Unity right-click menu but "New Window" is missing.

GNOME doesn't have this problem since it adds "New Window" to every app,. The fix is to add a New Window action. This doesn't affect GNOME (not duplicated) but fixes Unity.

Test Case
Install the update
Launch Epiphany Web Browser
Right click on Epiphany in the Unity dash.
Does "New Window" show?

Regression Potential

Look into manually copying translations from gedit; otherwise this string won't be translated.

Other Info
This bug was originally about adding both 'New Window' and 'New incognito Window' but 'New Incognito Window' was added upstream to epiphany before 16.04 LTS.

Original Bug
Add action items for display in the Unity Launcher's Quicklist

Thank you for your work, please don't set to "fix commited" things where the fix didn't get commited to the official packaging vcs yet though or nobody is going to review them since the state indicates it's already checked in
