I am able to sign into my skype account, but whenever I try to click on the "contacts" tab it would just freeze and then I'd have to force quit and re-sign in to get skype to work again...is this happening to anyone else? I'm using a macbook pro and yes, I've updated skype to the latest version but it seems as if after the update, the lag/crash is even worse...anyone can help?

People, found solution. Just go to Skype home and click the tiny wheel (configuration) on the top right corner and click disconnect from facebook. Wait a few seconds and skype goes back to it's skype contacts and works fine. Needless to say facebook has something to do with this. 

 

 Cheers.

If you could give us some information as explained by the following guide:

That would be helpful!

 

Thanks :-)
