This is because the image in the signature is not sent with the message, 
but on a web server.

This should be solved when you switch to "Simple HTML":
Menu View | Message body as | Simple HTML.
That will show a much simpler version of the HTML message that you 
receive, including stripping remote graphics, but also use the same 
simplified HTML for quoting.

There's a TB bug in bugzilla to always use the sanitized version of the 
HTML when quoting (but I couldn't find it. anybody?)
