Hyperlinks That Last All Summer Long

How do you stop this from happening?

FTrain had an article about it recently:

When the URL's address-based portion breaks, the signature is fed into any web search engine to find the new site of the page." You tried to escape Google, that was your mistake!

Something to integrate into Mozilla:
