This issue occurs when copying your email signature from Safari. If you're experiencing this, you will need to open your email signature's HTML file in Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox (or be logged into your Email Signature Rescue account using Chrome or Firefox if copying from Fullscreen Preview) then copy the signature from there.
I am composing an email and I can't click on any links or social media icons
In compose mode, most email programs won't allow you to use the links in your email signature. Check to see if your email signature has been installed correctly by sending a test email to yourself instead. The links and social media icons should work when you receive the email.
