I want to add a bookmark keyword in Firefox for Google's I'm Feeling Lucky but the URL changes too quickly for me to copy it.

It's http://www.google.com/search?q=%s&btnI=I'm+Feeling+Lucky (from the bottom of your link), where '%s' is the search string.

You only need &btnI=&. –  Brad Gilbert Jul 15 '09 at 18:53

This link for example searches for "French Military Victories"

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=french+military+victories&btnI=745

+1 for providing the short version ("btnI=745"). But I think it is a bad example as the result is empty (it's an old joke (by Scott Hanselman?)) and does not really demonstrate that it works. If "CPU" is used instead of "french military victories" then it will open the top result (a Wikipedia article in this example). –  Peter Mortensen Jan 10 '10 at 20:14

If you just type your search terms into the address bar in Firefox, it will perform an 'I'm feeling lucky' search by default.
You may have issues with your ISP redirecting you to a lame 'domain not found' page, though. This is because Firefox attempts to look up the site first and only performs the search once the lookup fails. My ISP allowed me to opt out of it, so it's not a big issue.
