Default Ads that refocus and scroll screen

In the past few days, I've noticed ads re-scrolling and refocusing the screen up to the ad, and away from the puzzle.

I usually scroll down a little bit so that I can see all of the puzzle on my screen. When I'm in the middle of solving the puzzle, the ad will undo my scrolling and put the focus on the add, which completely changes the screen so that I have to scroll back down to the puzzle to solve it. It does this over and over when solving a puzzle and has dramatically affected my solving times and enjoyment of the puzzles.

I'm using google chrome on linux, if that helps. I have not tested other browsers.

I've included screenshots of 2 of the problematic ads. I noticed a different ad yesterday, but didn't take a screenshot.

Hope this info is helpful.
