Bug Description

Broken out from https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/webdeveloper/+bug/904594/comments/8

I upgraded firefox-branding and firefox-gnome-support without firefox package for Lucid.
It brokes firefox installation. Now I can't run firefox.

I think it should be not possible to install firefox-branding and firefox-gnome-support without firefox package
