Telephone Number Links

more options

When I'm using FF on my Mac, Catalina OS, and click on telephone numbers in websites, they always open up Skype, which I don't want them to do.

Instead, I want them to take me to Facetime and dial the number there.

Is there some configuration in my Preferences or an add-on that is causing phone numbers to open Skype instead of Facetime?

What can I do to get it open Facetime and dial there instead of Skype?

If you go to the Firefox settings page and scroll down to the Applications section, it should be listed in there and you can change the default program. I believe you are looking for the tel content type.

Hope this helps.
