I don't think, that Skype blocks, something, but:
Privacy and security
A lot of people do not want to run Skype because it tries to collect
data from your system which it shouldn't do. It tries to read your
Firefox profile for whatever reason (said to be because of
autodetecting proxy settings but could be more).
To avoid such things you can use AppArmor to protect your system.
