OK, I've installed Leopard, and after 24 hours that felt like being back in the Windows world it's running fine. Now there's just one more problem concerning Skype:

I can only open Skype once. After closing it and then double-clicking the Skype application once more, it will not open. What I have to do is delete the application, re-install from the dmg I downloaded from the Skype homepage and then start Skype again. If I close it again, it won't open and I do the same thing over and over.

Has anyone had any similar experiences with Skype? Does anyone know a solution to my problem? I am using Skype version 2.6.0.151.

Thank you very much.

pjhutch has a little shameless behaviour in the past

Instead of re-installing the application, have you tried deleting the skype Preference file instead (~\Library\Preferences)?

Wow - that's fun...

Same here.

EDIT: This seems to fix it:

I have the same version of Skype as you and it works fine for me. Did you try pjhutch's suggestion?

"No. No, Mother, I have not been drinking. No. No. These two men, they poured a whole bottle of bourbon into me. No, they didn't give me a chaser."

Thanks for your help, everybody. I found on the Skype forum how to solve the issue: Turn off the firewall. As it is turned off by default this may be the reason many don't experience this problem.

Here are some links that might help: http://forum.skype.com/lofiversion/i...hp/t62363.html
http://forum.skype.com/lofiversion/i...p/t100590.html

Of course, having the firewall turned off does not seem like a satisfactory solution. I seem to be in luck as my ISP has a firewall that is quite effective. I hope these links will solve all problems encountered.

Thanks for the update and I'm glad you were able to figure it out.
