My skype keep showing blank page. Sometimes show an error message

Skype still freezes. Have switched back to Franz where Skype works fine. I will try Station again after any new updates. But at this point Station is not a productive option.

My problem is that links sent to me on the Skype app are not opening and you have two pop-ups: one saying "Oops, it looks like something went wrong. Click OK to automatically reload Skype for Web, and a second one that is a Station blank page.

Just after typing some letters, the following error message pops up and want to reload the page.
Clicking on the “eye” icon and the page reloads. Parts of the written message is lost, but most is preserved.


Developer gonsole gives following message a minor bit before “refresh”

Every time I send a message on skype, it runs into and error and makes me refresh the window.

It seem to be related to number of characters that has been entered into the chat window.
Switching into Skype to write something small like a smilie works and then back out.

If you write a long text message and then switch to Skype, paste it, send it and then switch to another application, it will not crash. Tiresome but works as a semi workaround.

Start to write a longer text message, and it crashes more or less at the same amount of characters. You can still write with the “crash” box appearing and once you hit ENTER the message is sent. You don’t see what’s being written but its working in the background. When you then hit reload, the message you wrote will be seen and showed as sent.

It happens to me too, on Windows 10

At first Skype crashed when I focus on the Skype App, type in and wait some seconds, eventually the app chrashed and then automatically reloads.

but, after the last update, Crashes every time, even thou wasn’t on focus, just crash on bacfkgroudn reloading and crashing again, and again and again"

Please Fix!!!

I think it has something about with muted notifications, or some sort

1.45.2 still has this bug. Because of this I cannot use Station as I keep getting the error message telling me I need to refresh Skype.
Please fix this asap.
PS: Franz works just fine with Skype.

I am being affected by this issue too which is a shame as it is such a great app!

This is still an issue in the latest version: 1.46.1

same here, skype stop while typing… version 1.48.1 latest
