Perhaps running two instances of FF, with different profiles helps.

  [rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ firefox --help|grep -i profile
    -P <profile>       Start with <profile>.
    --profile <path>   Start with profile at <path>.
    --ProfileManager   Start with ProfileManager.

firefox -P one_per_cent
firefox -P hundred_per_cent


Joking apart, as already pointed out, click the search icon and
unchecks "Provide search suggestions", if you want to use the Google
search, or add  Startpage   and make it the default. Startpage provides
quasi the same hits as Google does, since it's based on Google, but it
provides better privacy. Note, by default Startpage has got family
filters enabled and this filter sometimes misvalues a search term.
