Did Skype change your browser’s phone numbers

It did to one of our valued customers who could not understand why, after installing Skype on his PC, he could no longer check our useful list of Manufacturers’ Telephone Numbers as he did before.

Skype’s default installation includes extensions for Microsoft Internet Explorer and for Mozilla Firefox. To disable these extensions:
1. Open your web browser
2. On the toolbar, click the icon to turn off the Skype Add-on/Extension icon as shown here: http://www.skype.com/intl/en/help/guides/ie_addon/

Alternatively, you can uninstall Skype from your computer and reinstall it checking off these two extensions after clicking on the Options button before launching the installation:
– Install Skype extension for Mozilla Firefox
– Install Skype add-on for Internet Explorer

Either one of these two solutions will allow you to view your phone numbers the way you did before installing Skype, while enjoying the benefits of this great service.
