Ad blocker improvements

Performance of the built-in ad blocker feature was significantly improved. With string matching algorithm improvements, the tests have shown up to 13% average performance increase for the built-in anti-Bitcoin mining tool.

Allow all sites to use Flash

The released build now includes a new option to allow Flash to run on all sites without extra requests. Out of the box, Opera shows a confirmation to run Flash. This behavior now can be disabled in Settings (Preferences on macOS) > Websites > Flash.
