Can't install Firefox 1.5 without removing GNOME?

I see the mozilla-firefox package has been renamed to firefox. If I try installing 1.5, it forces me to remove GNOME. WTF? I just want to run the latest Firefox, and dependencies prevent me from doing so. Can I uninstall GNOME, install Firefox, and reinstall GNOME? Or will it complain about dependencies?

Which Debian version are you running? FF 1.5 installed with no problems on my testing/unstable version.

(On the other hand about 105 packages (new KDE) won't without uninstalling most of KDE.)
