I'm really confused...

In my bitcoin.exe window, I have "Your Bitcoin Address:"

I use deepbit to mine, and so I sent some bitcoins from my pool account to this address.  It went through just fine, no issues.  Then I sent those bitcoins off to MtGox.  Just fine, no issues.

But now, the "Your Bitcoin Address:" has changed to something else!  So this is not a permanent address?  If not, how/when does it change, and how are vendors able to post their address in the marketplace if it is always changing?

Your client generates new address for every transaction. All your old addresses  are still valid and can be seen in Settings>Your Receiving Addresses. It is convenient because if you are a seller you can give every customer a new address and know if they paid or not
