When I go to a web page, any web page, with a phone number, it show up with the Skype logo and the phone number is in a blue font. I can't read this as my eyesight is not great. How can I configure Firefox browser to now show the phone like this? I don't use Skype for phone calls and would like it removed from my browser.

Chosen solution

there should by separate entries for the skype application and the skype click-to call plugin in your windows control panel and you could just remove the latter one. if you still would not like to do it you can also selectively disable the click-to-call extension in firefox: Disable or remove Add-ons

I don't want to uninstall Skype. I use it for chatting with my friends. I want to stop it from showing in my browser. I've included a picture of what I mean.
