Flash ads slowing down browser and sometimes crashing Answered

Hey, longtime user here and this problem just started a few days ago. Using Google Chrome 58.0.3029.110 on a Mac Powerbook OS X 10.11.6. On pages with Flash ads, it's slowing down the pages to a crawl and several time crashed the browser. Not having this problem with other sites on this browser. 

Please advise....

as a logged in user you will notice an ad free experience on our site. And in regards to some of the ads being flash based, it's our ad provider that fills the adspots with relevant content for the user on our site, not all of them are flash based, i'd say the easiest fix here is just to login as you browse the site, ads are removed everywhere for all logged in users.
