Poor Instructions Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The add on works great. Just there no instructions on how to create the signature. Would have been nice as writing code/html/etc is out of my league.

Insert on separate lines? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Without using this app, if I don't check the html box, my signature appears on separate lines as written. If I check the html box, it all appear on one line. When using the app, however, if I leave the html box unchecked, and then check the box to insert a signature from a file (so the signature doesn't automatically appear), the signature appears on one line when I use the context menu to insert it. So it acts like html even though the html box isn't checked. Is there a way to make it appear on separate lines?

Great Job. Many thanks. Just what we need. Should be part of Thunderbird client.

Nice work! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Simple, useful and nice add-on. But I have a problem with HTML mails using plain text signature.
I have added a few lines of code to your add-on to prevent that problem, and I will give you those lines with pleasure. Are you interested?

Yes I am interested, please :-)

Macht genau das, was es soll. DANKE! :D

Supporting file-signature would be great Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The add-on works only with signatures defined in the signature field of your account, which is too bad.
I managed to override the problem by copying the content of my file-sig in the thunderbird-integrated signature field, but that's not a pretty solution IMHO.

Please, add file-sig support, that'd be great.

You can't use a file-signature! If you add your signature into the signature-field it will work...

sehr nützlich Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Ich brauche nur bei 1% meiner zahlreichen Mails eine Signatur, daher ist das genau das, was ich brauche.

1. Zeilenumbrüche respektieren:Bei mir werden die 6 Zeilen der Sig. einfach aneinander geklebt. Liegt evtl. daran, dass ich "Nachrichten im HTML-Format verfassen" an habe.(umständliche) Abhilfe: br (in spitzen Klammern) einfügen
2. Das Feld "HTML verwenden" (Konten-Einstellungen, rechts neben "Signaturtext") respektieren:bei mir wird das immer als gesetzt betrachtet
3. klarer beschreiben, was dieses Addon eigentlich macht: Es fügt den Text unter "Konteneinstellungen->Signaturtext" an wahlweise an Cursorposition oder Ende ein.Und damit dieser Text nicht schon von TB selbst eingefügt wird, muss man (usw)

Nice Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It does everything I need it to do. I like the fact that I can add the signature where my cursor is positioned. It would be really nice to be able to select different signatures, too.

Nice add on! It is useful if you use Thunderbird.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

In general a great idea, since this feature is not available by default in Thunderbird - wonder why! However, it doesn't seem to work as expected in the following situations.

a) When I reply to an email the plug-in does not add the signature, even though I have the settings configured per instructions.

b) If you manage multiple accounts, and let's say you are in account A, click compose new email, realize you want to send from account B, change it in the compose window; the add signature no longer inserts the signature.

I will say that I searched high-and-low for a way to get rid of the "--" that is inserted by default by Thunderbird. I found a solution and implemented it and I am wondering if that has something to do with my issues. Any thoughts/ideas are welcome.

If you use more than one account please use signature switch instead!!!

Please do not remove the "-- \n" at the beginning of the signature, it is truly usefull! :-)


Editing end! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

That's it!!! I tried to use the html code you suggested <br> and after ticking the html format box at the top of the signature box, it works just fine now. Thank you for your add on and for your time and good advice. Unlike soem of the reviewers, I think it's a great feature to be able to decide when you want your signature to be inserted or not. Cheers,

Perfect! Thank you for using add-signature :-)
I think this feature should be a default of thunderbird.

I second Kjell's question: Where does one associate the HTML signature line text with the right-click command? Thanks for trying to simulate Signature Switch: that seems such a basic email command that I can't fathom why Version 7 disabled it...

very simple Rated 4 out of 5 stars


Just one signature? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Beyond the ability to add a signature when you normally don't use one, this add-on is of little utility. What would be VERY helpful is the ability to CHOOSE from among several different "signatures" that can be inserted.

Another add-on called "Signature Switcher" does this, but is not compatible with 7.0+.

(PS to author: I'm not blaming you for another add-on's incompatibility. Just pointing out your add-on isn't as good.)

sorry, but don't blame me for the compatibility of "signature switch"! :-)

Seems good but... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

....how do I create the signature? Cant find anywhere to do that. ( I am brand new to Thunderbird as you probably understand.

so simple NOT Rated 1 out of 5 stars

how about a simple signature, different fonts, colors, sizes with no required -- as is now the case with thunderbird. seems so easy yet they cannot do it.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Better than the previous way to add a signature automatically, because now you can choose to add it or not. But it would be interesting to create multiple signatures and select the right one depending on the message.

Hi orge, if you need more than one signature you should use the addon Signature Switch! Add Signature was designed to just add one Signature.

It ultimately solves a phantom problem Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The statement that there is no signature function is wrong. Actually there is a function to automatically insert signatures that few know about. You just click on tools, account options and there is an option right there to automatically include a signature. If the signature is already enabled then the app fails to work. Also, for alternate signatures or switching them the most painless method is to put them into a folder( probably in your pictures) and then just manually delete the default signature, hit insert, image, pick one and put it at the end of the mail. The low rating isn't the spirit of being harsh. The developer appears to have solved a problem that didn't actually exist. Sorry Grufo.

hi apollo, add-signature is not designed to do the same the existing signature feature does!
if you start writing an email an you remove the signature there is no function to include it again, you have to copy an rewrite your message.
also if you want to choose when to include a signature to your mail - then you can use add-signature!
there is actually no feature in thunderbird to add the signature to specific mails.

signature not appearing Before the Quote Rated 3 out of 5 stars

'''Note''' - If you use the quote feature and you want to see your signature above the quoted message and not at the default end of the message,
Go to Account Settings,
Composition & Addressing,
Change the first radio bar to "Start my reply above the quote"
Then change the radio bar setting (at my place signature) to say "below my reply (above the concept.
You must do this for each of your email accounts.

It would be nice if this sensible concept was the default but it is not.

As noted by another reviewer - Non of these Signature add ons work well. While this one will give you the right click option.
It does not give you the option to add a usefull choice of a signature that you have created.
All I could get was a muted couple of dashes.

works great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect! I have been waiting for this for years. I don't want to attach the signature to each email but need to do it from time to time. This extension allows me to do exactly that. For it to work, you have to type your signature in the "signature text" (use HTML format for better formatting), and check the "attach the signature from a file instead" box below (which is equivalent as setting the "true" value in the .js file). However, you have to select a signature file that does not exist (e.g. I renamed the file after selecting it) otherwise you will get duplicate signatures. It sounds strange but that's how it works.
