It tries to always have you have a browser installed.

Hello,

I am cleaning up my Debian system (Removing unnecsary packages) and so far there were no problems until I removed firefox-esr (It automatically installed chromium) So then i tried to remove chromium and it wants me to install firefox again,

how can I fix this as even using "--no-install-recommends" flag doesn`t work.

Terminal:- 

anand@debian:~$ sudo apt remove chromium --no-install-recommends

I would have no problems using chromium (If google didn't remove sync from it) so I installed chrome but even then it wants to install Firefox when I remove chromium. I think I will probably just ignore chromium.
