Since upgrading to Skype 184.108.40.2067 (Mac) I can no longer select my status as online, even though I am online. I can select Away and Do Not Disturb without any problem, but no online. I've tried the menubar and Skype itself, but nothing changes it.
Any ideas on how to fix this? I'm running a MacBook Pro, 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7, Mac OS X 10.7.3.
You might remove Skype preferences files (com.skype.skype.plist)

As they are 2 Skype preferences files, be sure to remove the 2 !
- /Library/Preferences >>> com.skype.skype.plist
- ~/Library/Preferences >>> com.skype.skype.plist
Deleted both. Rebooted. Emptied trash. Started Skype. Same problem.
Tried iPhone and I can set status to ONLINE there, so it isn't my account. It's a problem with Skype (220.127.116.117) and Mac OS X 10.7.3 with a Macbook Pro, 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7 machine. Firewall is ON, but I also turned it off with no difference.
Well, well, well,
- Quit Skype
- Go to Home ~/Library/Application Support
- Remove the entire Skype folder
Be warned however that so doing, your chat and call history will be lost !!!
- Restart your Mac
- Relaunch Skype
Issue **should** be solved.
