there is no gui for that, you have to use your fav. texteditor:

in the mouse section in the config file, go to context name="Client"
and there remove the action that says "Raise" on "press".

the file is at ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml, if not there, try obconf, and
it will create one, or copy over from /etc...
