I have the problem shown here

Using biber, sometimes I get citation like "Markus J (2016)" and sometimes "Markus JG (2015)". The two are the same author, but in the .bib file sometimes there is just one first name and sometimes there are two.

I don't have the time right now to fix the bib file. I just want to use biber and disable the "full name disambiguation" feature. How can I do that?

Using bibtex I don't have this problem, but I have a warning in the error log

You can disable name disambiguation with biblatex's option uniquename=false.
