Note that x-scheme-handler/http is not present, did you try adding:
x-scheme-handler/http                   org.laptop.WebActivity
to mime-defaults?

The result *should be* the same as changing the default with xdg-mime but
just for the sugar processes, that is your goal correct?

Prior to adding the above line the webpage would not load at all(closes
terminal). This appears to work with the altered mime-defaults as above on
XO's here but it doesn't look like the browse activity, more
like epiphany.
