Why ?

Chosen solution

Hello willmath,

Thanks for posting on the Mozilla Support forums. The code you posted didn't work in my version of Firefox 27 either.

Luckily I found a solution solution:

<marquee onMouseOver="this.setAttribute('scrollamount', 0, 0);" OnMouseOut="this.setAttribute('scrollamount', 6, 0);">Hello</marquee>

This works in Firefox 27.0.1 which is the version I tested it on.

It may be useful for you to read the following on the marquee element. As it is a non-standard element, support over each browser will vary and the solution I provided may not work on other browsers.
