even disabling ABP, the page is very slow / heavy (firefox / chrome)

for example, if you add this filter


the page will be loaded very fast, losing only some video pic preview (test it better to see if breaks some other functionality)

the blocked script is a giant one

I can reproduce this with Chrome 52 on Linux. The tab crashes reliably so long as Adblock Plus and EasyList are enabled. (When no filters / subscriptions are enabled the tab doesn't crash.)

As mapx says it's a huge and slow website, but I still think it's a bug that we're causing a Chrome tab to hang like this. Perhaps Sebastian will disagree but I'll mark this as ready for now.
