It appears to be a ad supported flash program that you are using.   If you have a way to block domains (chrome plugin like HTTP Switchboard) you can try to block the ad domain you referenced in the GET above (http://www.yimgr.com/)  but this may have undesired consequences depending on how the flash program was written.

I don't know of a tool myself.  You may need to review all flash programs on the page and open them separately to see if you receive the error.
Without having the source code for the flash or decompiling I can't think of another way.

1) So the flash programs you are referring to are ones that are launched by the webpage and not originating by some malware or browser add-on?
2) If so, how do I list all the flash programs on a webpage (by which I assume that means flash program instances)?
3) What do you mean by "opening a flash program separately"?  How would I do so?
