Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sorry to see this addon go. It was truly a terrific app for gmail. I understand the difficulties of constant updates from firefox and chrome, as they always screw up creativity. If you're still using it and it doesn't work you can try opening compose email then press shift and refresh the page. That seems to get it to work. At least it still works for me.

Has not worked for several months Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This used to be excellent but I don't think it is supported any more. Hasn't worked for months. Constantly get error "Error in Blank Canvas Gmail Signatures: "
Currently Win7 FF 16.0.2 Blank Canvas Signatures for Gmail 1.18.6b (tried 1.17.3 but it did not work either.)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great add-on, but it would be even better if there would be a whitelist/blacklist of email addresses which would automatically enable/disable inserting signatures. It even could define which particular signature to insert for which email address.

Very useful.
Those who are beginners can use the templates (http://blankcanvas.me/gmail-signatures/signature-templates).

Excellent signature addon. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I tip my hat to the author.
This simple addon will allow you to make excellent signature with HTML, as long as it's considered valid HTML it will render it just like you want it, and it gives you total control of this.

Very good addon, I don't think anyone who uses it regrets it.

Tip: If you don't see the buttons to configure it like you should, install the latest beta version and it should work.

UPDATE Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I made all these tweaks to my signature to include my branding with every email. Unfortunately BCS hasn't updated in months and is leaving its users in the cold. It would be great if FF actually slowed down on the updates for once because then maybe we could get functionality out of our plugins for more than 5 months at a time.

BC signature capability is still unmatched!

Although Firefox reports that this add-on will not work beyond version 6, here is a method to continue enjoying:
In the address bar of gmail, delete the "s" in "https" then hit enter. The page will reload and you will notice that the the address still shows "https". And now you will notice that Blank Canvas also works.

From my observations in Chrome, I believe that what is happening is that, although the connection to gmail is still secure, some elements such as needed by BC are allowed to be transmitted unsecure.

Awesome idea, but buggy Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I really really love what Blank Canvas dose. The way it deals with email signatures far surpasses Gmail's built in abilities. Things I love about it:
It removes old signatures from quoted material
It automatically applies the signature appropriate for the current email alias being used
It allows for many different signatures

Unfortunately, there are some serious issues:
1) On occasion, when attempting to reply or forward messages, Blank Canvas will erase the entirety of quoted material. Firefox must be restarted to restore functionality.
2) And the real deal breaker: Blank Canvas uses way too many CPU cycles. I am using Windows 7 64 bit, and Firefox 3.6. I have a 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo cpu, and with Blank Canvas enabled and Gmail opened in any FF tab, FF always uses between 10 and 20% of the CPU (that's 20-40% of one core, which is all FF can use anyway). If I leave Gmail open for a long time, FF will go up to a solid 50% of total CPU until I close the Gmail tab and reopen it.

So the functionality is awesome, but I just can't use it as long as it's so CPU hungry for such a small task.

Glad it's working now. Signature not showing up when in plain text format is as designed (as you put it), but I agree that it should give you an unformatted version of your signature when in plain text mode. I will plan to implement this.

Still Mac OS X CPU overuse issue Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I have installed the beta version 1.15.1b, the result is better but I still have a permanent CPU load between 10 and 20% of one core, which disappears if I deactivate your extension again (with FF Mac OS X) with the same tabs active (one forum, gmail and igoogle).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.14.0).  This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.

Some CPU usage normal but probably still too high

Sorry to hear it's still eating your CPU. The extension does do some polling of the Gmail page to listen for interface changes (listening for compose, inbox, etc). This happens every half second or so, so I am not surprised that you are experiencing some increased CPU usage. That said, it may still be using more than we would like. Perhaps I can add an option to change the polling interval so that it doesn't check so frequently for people with slower machines.

For what it's worth, BC Gmail Sigs v1.15.1 in Firefox 4.0b8pre my CPU usage on the Gmail inbox page is about 2-6% on my work computer. It uses 1-3% of hte CPU when running in the dev build of Google Chrome. This is definitely worth revisiting. Thanks for mentioning it.

Great add-on, it works really well.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

When it works, it's a great plugin, but it's very flaky for me (1.12.06b )

At first, it had a bad habit of "forgetting the signatures and I'd have to type them back in.

Lately, I just can't get it to show in GMail at all.

In general, I think this functionality is simply difficult to pull off with a browser plugin and it really needs to be a GMail Labs add-on
