Hello m_2,

Please, don't blame Firefox - unfortunately you seem to have picked up some malware, cause TapuFind is a browser hijacker ....

See : https://www.pcrisk.com/removal-guides/14248-search-tapufind-com-redirect-mac

Go to the Firefox menu (≡) => Preferences => Add-ons => Extensions and remove anything that looks unfamiliar or suspicious.

Next step : run malwarescans - further information can be found in this article :

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. They all work differently - what one program doesn't pick up, the other might.

When does it change back? Is it when re-downloading Firefox, or does your current installation of Firefox not save your choice?
