If I place the mouse over the titlebar of a window, and roll the mouse-wheel, the window will become shaded. Is there any way to disable this feature?

Are you running Compiz? Is this relevant? – user14517 Feb 29 '12 at 13:31
In Xfce 4.10, the mousewheel_rollup property is set to false already. This means, rolling the mouse wheel over the title bar of a window does not shade the window by default. No action is required. – clearkimura Nov 20 '15 at 16:36
