After downloading the signature switch add-on, and restarting Thunderbird, the signature switch icon did not appear on my toolbar.  Upon starting to compose a new email, an initialization menu appeared to point to and request where my signature files were located.  Having forgotten the exact location of my file, I quit the initializaiton and went looking for it.  Unfortunately, I couldn't get that menu back, so I uninstalled the add-on.  I then re-installed the sig file switch add-on.  I went back to compose an email.  Still wasn't there!

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install signature switch add-on
2.start to compose email.  Get initialization menu for signature switch
3.cancel out of that.
4.initialization doesn't show up again upon compositon, so uninstall sig switch add-on.
5.Reinstall and initialization doesn't show up.

Expected Results:  
Actually, since I already had an html sig file and had it set up, I really expected to see the sig file icon on the tool bar after I installed the add-on.  If that can't be done, then the menu should have preloaded into it a pointer to the sig file I already had pointed to in account settings.  Finally, the actual bug was that uninstalling the sig file add-on should have caused the sig file initialization menu window to reappear once I tried to compose an email again.

Finally, it would be better upon restarting Thunderbird that the sig file switch initialization menu request should have come up right away, rather than waiting for me to compose another email, since the restart of Thunderbird was due to putting in the add-on.
Sorry, but we do not support add-ons here because we don't author them ourselves (typically).

I suggest you contact the signature switch author at their homepage referenced here:
