Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  gnome totem-mozilla
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 2 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
After this operation, 263kB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]?
are there only packages using by totem-mozilla or it will destroy Gnome or other programs ?

It looks as though it wants to take out both Gnome and the plugin. The rest of the packages are potentially orphaned or simply not needed. If you allow it to go through it will only remove those 2 packages. To remove the big list, use apt-get autoremove.

Just curious - why is this dangerous? I use it all the time. Well, not all the time, but I have used it here and there without apparent problems.

autoremove works quite well. Besides it asks if its OK to remove , it doesn't just remove things.

apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

apt-get autoclean
apt-get autoremove

keeps things updated and nice and clean.

Just one more reason not to use gnome.

autoremove basically removes the same packages deborphan would.
