Browser phone number links overlay

[ Edited ]

How can this be turned off?? 

 

I do web work and it's irritating as heck seeing phone numbers being "Skyped" and so not displaying normally as just regular text.  There used to be a graphic but now it's a blue color overlay. I'd like to think this is optional and not a forced global change.

 

In tools>options I turned off SkypeNames.exe API access control but this doesn't seem to affect things. Suggestions anyone?

 

(I'm adding a spoof number for my test purposes 555-555-0000 ) - to add, well this remains normal but right now in another tab I have numbers being changed in appearance by Skype, and I do not use Skype for calls so do not want this.

Many thanks - had not thought to consider a plug-in!! Now removed with relief.
