I did that, and things got curiouser & curiouser : 
..Dependencies resolved
I will do the following:
[erase: mozilla 37:1.4.2-0.9.0.i386]
I will erase these to satisfy the dependencies:
[deps: mozilla-mail 37:1.4.2-0.9.0.i386]
[deps: openoffice.org-libs 1.1.0-16.i386]
[deps: openoffice.org 1.1.0-16.i386]
