Some telephone numbers only stay visible for a second or two, refreshing the screen brings them back but again for a second ie too short to note down. How can I stop this (use Vista Basic on laptop)?

When searching for numbers on a business website quite often, though not always, the telephone number only appears very briefly. Copying the web address on to Internet Explorer the number stays visible. Only happens on telephone numbers not for any other info eg email address. Have no idea why this happens as it appears to be random though it must relate to how a website is viewed. Wouldn't where to start to fix this!

The Skype for Firefox extension has been known to cause that to happen. Disable that extension in Tools > Addons > Extensions
