Sorry if am being stupid, it just caught my eyes and was wondering what story could be behind it. I just installed ePub Reader add-on to Firefox 7 and when I opened an ePub file, the url shows:

chrome://epubreader/content/reader.xul?id=1.

Why is chrome: being shown there?

The chrome: protocol is generally used for browser chrome in Firefox (meaning the browser's user interface as opposed to "content" - the web pages loaded into the browser). You can find some information on it in the XUL Tutorial. This terminology is much older than Google Chrome that seems to be the source of your confusion.
