Thunderbird - adding gif or img signatures error


I was trying just to add a small gif image to my signature in thunderbird. However it will not send the email.

After clicking send message the progress bar gets stuck on "adding gif" . I have now tried to create it as a html signature but it still stalls on adding gif. Is there a best method for graphic signatures in Thunderbird?

Here is my html signature.

Code:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML//EN">
<html> <head>
<title></title>
</head>

<body>
<h1></h1>
<img src="/home/flebber/ATT00001.gif" />


<hr>
<address></address>

You can try to specify the path to the image as a URL, e.g.
Code:
<img src="file:///home/flebber/ATT00001.gif" />
