I have used unity, gnome, lxde before but in xfce4, when Chrome is visible and my active window is a terminal, I scroll in Chrome with mouse however the terminal disappears and Chrome becomes active window. What causes this and how can I fix this? The other ones are used were keeping the Terminal active but scrolling the Chrome independently.

To enable that functionality, you need to go to Settings » Window Manager Tweaks once there go to the ** Accessibility** tab and uncheck the option Raise windows when any mouse button is pressed.
