ĸen, perhaps this is a rare occasion where I could help you.

I understand that in the up and down sides, you can resize the height,
but not in the left and right sides, for changing the width.

I just tried and confirmed this in XFCE. But if you try the corners,
then you will have the facilities for resizing height and/or width.

This seems a particularity of XFCE.

With LXDE, I tested and it woks normally, along the four sides and/or
four corners.

Same with me.

Therefore, if it is confirmed that you are using XFCE, I have the
impression that older versions won't matter.
