I guess this would be a nice enhancement since it would allow us to fully control the windows with my mice eg: resizing/moving windows also many window decorations don't have huge borders which makes it nearly impossible to rezize them properly.
GTK3 headerbar windows have also no decorations or resize grips and using the window modfier key is often the only way to resize them.
I don't understand, you already can set the "Windows" modifier key as "easy-click" in xfwm4-tweaks and use this key along with a right mouse button to resize or left mouse button to move.
So what is exactly you're asking for?
Are you coming from GNOME3 maybe?
Just to clarify, default is "Alt", so Alt+Right-click button resizes a window, Alt+Left-click moves a window.
BTW, stating that GTK3 CSD windows have no resize grips is not true, it uses the shadows as resize grips.

If it would be possible to use/set MB4(or 3,5,6,...) instead of ALT so I could MB4+MB2/RMB to resize the window.

I tried it often but, it never survived the first week =)

Oh I see, but mouse buttons 4/5 and 6/7 are used for mouse wheel (vertical and horizontal). I guess we /could/ use additional buttons, but that would make them unusable for anything else.

hm, so what about adding a settings page to allow users to change or complety disable all those wm mouse buttons?
