Safari keeps opening Login.skype.com in different tabs after every 10 seconds

Issue: Totally weird, Whenever I boot up my Mac computer safari keeps opening silent Skype login page, Login.skype.com in different tabs and its a blank page.I do not have Skype on my Mac OS X Yosemite.It annoys me so much that I can not do anything on my Mac as whenever I try to do something a new safari tab pop ups with Skype.login.com.Which never stops the drama.

Its also opens same login.skype.com page in defferent tabs in chrome as shown in the above picture.

Solution to Safari keeps opening Login.skype.com in different tabs after every 10 seconds

Initially I reset the safari and did all the troubleshooting to remove Skype and reset safari configuration.I force quit the Safari and deleted the following file.
~/Library/Safari
~/Library/Caches/Apple
~/Library/Caches/Metadata/Safari
~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari
~/Library/Caches/com.apple.WebKit.PluginProcess
~/Library/Cookies/Cookies.binarycookies
~/Library/Preferences/Apple
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.LSSharedFileList.plist
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.RSS.plist
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.plist
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.WebFoundation.plist
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.WebKit.PluginHost.plist
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.WebKit.PluginProcess.plist
~/Library/PubSub/Database
~/Library/Saved Application State/com.apple.Safari.savedState

It still keeps opening Login.skype.com pop up.Then I tried to force Safari to start clean every time by typing the following command in terminal.

defaults write com.apple.Safari ApplePersistenceIgnoreState YES

Still no help safari still keeps opening Login.skype.com.I checked if there is a program scheduled to run after every 10 seconds to open login.skype.com.Checked the listing of scheduled task by typing following command on terminal.

crontab -l

There were no scheduled task.So checked scheduled task for root user by typing “sudo crontab -l”.It did not have any either.

Finally I got to the real Solution and found out MailTab Pro for Outlook.com (App that I use in my menu bar for outlook mail) is having some kind of issue. It has an skype login icon on the top right hand corner which tries to connect and login to skype after every 10 seconds and if it can not connect,opens the webpage login.skype.com and keeps doing it.

Steps to stop Login.skype.com pop up

You need to unlink your outlook from skype or uninstall the MailTab Pro for Outlook.com apps and configure your email in Apple Mac Mail instead.

IMPORTANT: You can only unlink your accounts once – please ensure you want to do this before proceeding.

To unlink your Skype account from your Microsoft or Facebook accounts:

  1. Sign into your account.
  2. In the Settings and preferences section, click Account settings.
  3. On the Account settings page, click Unlink next to your Microsoft or Facebook account.
If the account has Not linked as an option rather than Unlink, it means your Facebook or Microsoft account isn’t currently linked to your Skype account. If you were expecting to see a linked account, ensure you’ve signed in with the correct Skype Name.

Unlink Skype
4. An information window opens. Read the information and, if you agree, select Continue to unlink your Skype and Microsoft or Facebook accounts.
If you sign in with a Microsoft account, unlinking will mean you can no longer sign into Skype with that Microsoft account (your Microsoft account will not be closed; only your access to Skype with that Microsoft account will be affected). Read the message that appears and, if you agree, select Close account.
Or you could simply remove this MailTab Pro for Outlook.com apps from application and send it to trash to fix this login.skype.com tabs opening problem.I uninstalled it and safari stopped opening Login.skype.com pop up.
