Since any update (chromium, xorg, ...?) chromium and google-chrome dont get some mouse events
when clicking left mouse button, and moving the cursor (still clicked), then releasing the left mouse button (so like marking an area in the browser) the browser doesnt get the event
(getting a right mouse button event). Afterwards moving the mouse cursor in the browser is still marking and this couldnt be removed - only by closing the tab.

In Firefox everything is still fine

Additional info:
* chromium/google-chrome-94, chromium/google-chrome-95 and chromium/google-chrome-96
* xorg-*-21.1.1-2
* mesa-21.2.5-1
* xfwm4-4.16.1-3

Steps to reproduce:
