Is there a way to control how many lines will scroll, when you use the mouse wheels? It seems to be 5 lines by default, anyway to change this value?

I didn't find it in xfce4-settings-manager

Every tick of the wheel actually generates a ButtonPress and ButtonRelease (of mouse button 4 (Up) and 5 (Down)). Basically, using the wheel is like clicking a virtual up or down button repeatedly. How those events are used to scroll lines or something else is down to the application.

For example, with firefox, type about:config in the location bar and change the setting for mousewheel.withnokey.numlines and disable mousewheel.withnokey.sysnumlines

What application would you like to modify?

You can try using imwheel, as there is no option to set this in X config currently.
