So of course you cant create html signatures in gmail... ergg!

Silly rabbit, you can drag and drop images/html into the gmail Richtext editor...
well that just will not do.

So that would mean - greasemonkey script! Im not going to waste any time here.

if your having any problems.. you may have to increase the timout.. the only problem with that is the load time increases..

change 600 => 1500 milliseconds.

So how do you use it?

I get an error saying " window is undefined" and does not execute fully.

It appears that there are couple different things happening. One is the lag time of browser loading the iframe. The iframe is located within the body of the text of the email. You may need to tweak the iframe name and load time depending on your different configurations of gmail composer.
