i am new to skype.
it worked last week, but does not work this week.
when I try to open it in safari ...it gives me a message saying it cannot open...
firefox does not open either...
Skype is an application by itself.
So, simply by double-clicking it, it should work fine.
I'm having the same problems with Safari.
The message is that Safari can't open the specified address. Safari can't open "skype:?call" because Mac OS X doesn't recognize Internet address starting with "skype.".
As Foyan says, Skype calling requires that the Skype application be installed on your computer. You cannot make Skype calls from a browser. You can manage your account, but not make calls.
