Adobe PDF Reader broke epiphany file associations


I installed Adobe PDF Reader using their installation script. It didn't work, so I uninstalled it by deleting the directory (their suggested method). However, epiphany and firefox browsers are still associating with it. So when I click on a link to a PDF, instead of opening it or saving it, it gives me an error.

I couldn't find any link in epiphany to change file associations, and found out it uses GNOMES's associations. GNOME is associated with Evince. Epiphany is not. How do I fix this?
