You can use the Remove google search redirects addon.

Google uses a redirection link to track your clicks. This addon simply removes that redirection and turns every search result in its original link, saving your time and giving you more security.

Or without the addon: Remove Google Redirection userscript.

Remove redirection and click-tracking in Google search results.

The Firefox addon no longer rewrites the URLs in the HTML, so you can't copy the links anymore. – Sam Jan 16 '15 at 22:56
