Thunderbird signature file doesn't display image files

I attached an html signature file which has links to associated image files (on disk). However, when a new message is created the images do not show but are indicated with small orange diamonds - even though you can double click on these and see the correct reference to the jpg or gif file.

The same file works fine when used as a signature in Outlook Express.

    Did you follow the instructions here?

    And are you composing your emails as HTML?

    Yes but the html project was done by a web developer - it is like a saved web-page - it has an images directory and none of the images from that directory load up into the signature.

    You need to point to your image source:
    <img src="file:///c:/directory/image.png">

    Yes you are right - this doesn't work -

        <td rowspan="2"><img src="images/headersamnew_02.jpg" width="344" height="83" alt=""></td>

    and this works -

        <td rowspan="2"><img src="file:///D:\images/headersamnew_02.jpg" width="344" height="83" alt=""></td>

    Thank you mtz.
