Skim reading isn't the problem.  Here is the description of skim reading from the user guide.
Allow skim reading in Say All

If on, certain navigation commands (such as quick navigation in browse mode or moving by line or paragraph) do not stop Say All, rather Say All jumps to the new position and continues reading.----- Original Message -----
The description of the problem is as follows:
>On Edge and Firefox I have to let it read the entire page and cannot stop it or go back to anything else it won’t read anything else.
This is a technical problem and can't be solved by changing settings.

It sounds like you may have skim reading turned on.
Press NVDA+ctrl+k, and look for "allow skim reading in say all". If that is
checked, uncheck it. I bet firefox and whatever else will work fine after that.

You might also want to press NVDA+ctrl+b, and uncheck "Automatic say all on page
load".
