You don't need to do that.

The function needed is a Labs feature. You just need to go into
Settings | Labs | Quote selected text

(Description: Quote the text you have selected when you reply to a
message. (Now works with the mouse too!))

Enable the option.

Then, in normal Gmail - not the Basic HTML version, and in any desktop
browser, without the need for any addons - just highlight the block of
text to which you're answering *before* you click "Reply".

You then get a new window, with the quoted text, your sig below it,
and the cursor positioned below the quote, ready to type. No need for
addons, special modes, anything.

You can of course highlight the whole message if you're not replying
to any specific bit.
