Skype freezes on Mac OSX 10.9 Mavericks

[ Edited ]


Whenever I open the IM window, I get this popup:

Internal Error

Then, Skype freezes and I have to force quit it. Sometimes, it even causes my computer to restart.

However, yesterday, this was never a problem. Help!


Specs of my computer:

Model: Macbook Air 2012

Operating system: OSX 10.9 Mavericks


Thanks in advance!

The latest version of Skype for Mac may crash when running on OS X 10.9 as it is mentioned in Apple's release notes for Mavericks.
