Hmm, nope, sorry, we don't have that.
You could try to patch that into AutoShow.py, but I'm not sure if the URL is available at all via AT-SPI. One would have to walk up the tree of accessibles and hope one of the focused widget's parents knows.

Alternatively, there is a new D-Bus property that allows to shut off auto-show from the outside.
https://bazaar.launchpad.net/~onboard/onboard/trunk/view/head:/README#L74
So, if you could somehow catch the URL outside of Onboard, say right in the browser, you could stop Onboard from showing that way.

Can you help with this problem?
