title bar - midlle click

Hi,
when I middle click on the title bar, window lowers itself. (according to xfce wiki)
Is it possible to disable this? So that middle click on title bar does nothing?

thanks

Re: title bar - midlle click

Hello,
I also wish to disable this. It is annoying when I go to close a tab in chrome with middle click, miss the tab, and chrome gets lowered.

Thanks

I’m not seeing anything that looks like it could disable this feature in the output of "xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -l".

I wrote a patch that allows disabling it.

xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/lower_on_middleclick -s false

Xfce is not responsible for this behaviour, the tabs in chrome are not placed in the title-bar.
see issue 132061

Thanks a lot! How do I apply this patch? I've checked out the repo, switched to your middleclick branch, but I'm not sure how to install it.

Edit: Never mind, I figured it out. Thank you SO MUCH! Now I just have to fix things on chrome's end.

Edit 2: Fixed by switching web browsers to firefox.

Not yet - the lower action is hard-coded. Here is what looks like a related bug report/enhancement request.

If you place your mouse cursor on the tab, instead of on the title bar, pressing the middle mouse button (or pressing both buttons on a laptop) successfully closes that tab in Firefox - I just checked to make sure that I was not misremembering.

You can also right-click on that tab and select (left-click) "Close Tab," right-click on that tab and press c, press CTRL-w when that tab is the one you are viewing in Firefox, or left-click on that tab's "x" (although if you happen to have 674 webpages in separate tabs as I have just noticed that I do, lol (gee, is that why Firefox has been loading slower than it used to? roll), you will only see that "x" on the tab of the page that is actually displayed in the browser).

Regards,
MDM
