Skype Add-in Crashing IE 11

I've been having an issue with IE 11 in Windows 8.1 ever since I installed Skype. IE 11 would crash constantly and tabs would close and re-open, sometimes in a loop. It was very noticable with Facebook. I found that if I disabled the Skype Add-on's for IE 11 the issue went away. Does anyone have an idea what that is and if there is a way to fix it? I'm using version 6.12.0.13601 of the Skype IE add-on which I believe is the latest version.

Uninstall Skype Click-to-Call add-on. You don't need it.

I realize I don't need it, I just like the added functionality of being able to click on a phone number on a website and have it start dialing the number.
