Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  libmozjs-dev: Depends: libnspr4-dev (= but it is not going to be installed

I can confirm this, installing libnspr4-dev means uninstalling libnspr4, on which gaim, and firefox and a whole buch of other packages (from ubuntu-desktop) seem to depend....

Confirmed again.

Sorry. I've mixed up 7.04 and 8.04.

Still here on 8.04

As a workaround for hardy users, you can just manually download and use libnspr4-dev from intrepid:

I haven't tested to make sure compiling goes smoothly, but at least apt doesn't complain.

Hardy is set for critical bug fixes only now in its lifecycle, so I don't think we'll be doing an SRU for it. Closing as "Won't Fix".
