I'm sorry to have been unclear.

I was talkng about keep "specifier", that is, firefox-ja':', a colon 
after a package name, and hold "specifier" firefox-ja'='.

So please try these two commands.
 aptitude -s install whatever:
 aptitude -s install whatever=

To see install, remove, and purge specifier is OK, try these three commands.
 aptitude -s install whaterver+
 aptitude -s install whaterver-
 aptitude -s install whaterver_
