How to trim a Feedburner feed?

Within the past couple of weeks, I've noticed that a lot of extra info is being displayed in the Firefox address bar when clicking through from my feed reader. How do I stop this from happening?

I'm using Firefox 3.5.5 and Sage-Too 2.0.0. Up until a couple of weeks ago, when clicking through from Icanhascheezeburger's feed, it would show

in the address bar, but now it shows

http://icanhascheezburger.com/2009/12/05/funny-pictures-smarter-than-the-terrier/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+ICanHasCheezburger+%28I+CAN+HAS+CHEEZBURGER%3F%29

I think I may have upgraded Firefox in the past couple of weeks, but Sage-Too has been installed since August. I'm also pretty sure that this is only happening on Feedburner feeds.

How do I get it to stop adding the extra bit on the end and make it display like it did previously? I don't want to change my feed reader if at all possible.

Looks like they're using this feature, so it's done on purpose on the server side.

I agree with effbot. It's not firefox, it's a feedburner feature.

Is there any way to deal with it, client side?

You could filter the feed that feedburner is generating to remove the fields. Pipes might be able to do this.
