Public bug report changed:

Task: ubuntu epiphany-browser
         Status: Unconfirmed => Confirmed

Ok, I can confirm this bug. But choosing always the address part won't work as there is nothing that resolves the .local address by default. you have to install libnss-mdns for this.
avahi has a function to check whether the system is able resolve .local hostnames but this is most probably not implemented in gnome-vfs (which epiphany uses for dns service discovery)
