If 'focus follows mouse' is enabled, clicking a window button in the taskbar raises the window but doesn't give it focus.
This behavior doesn't match the 4.10 release where the window does get focus.
Annoyingly this makes raising a window with one click, looking at it and then minimizing it with a second click impossible.
I'm running xubuntu 14.04 x64
xfwm4 version 4.11.1 (revision 2b800f4) for Xfce 4.10
xfce4-panel 4.11.0 (Xfce 4.10)
I can confirm this in 4.11. eg, you'll tap window foo in the taskbar to bring it to the foreground, but tapping it again won't minimize it unless you first bring window foo (or another window) to the foreground. Tested on Gentoo unstable.
I can also confirm this bug and want do provide some additional infos from a thread I started some time ago. Probably they can be useful for fixing:
Confirming bug on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
Created attachment 5736
I also use focus on mouse and have this trouble.
I can click as much as I can on the label of a window, it doesn't minimize it...
What make everything weird is that when you click on every taskbar button they are all activated...
Notice I don't have any problem if I use the "Click to focus" (which I never use actually).
Thanks in advance and keep the good job!
Oups, my spec: Linux Mint 17 Qiana XFCE.
Need more infos?

Dupe it - followup in 11055.

The fix belongs in xfwm4 and not in the panel

Thanks a lot! :)
Thanks for fixing this. I just installed this and it seems to work. This bug had prevented me from upgrading two computers.
