URLs / Hyperlinks taking too long to activate

Hi!  Having a strange problem since a few hours.  Each time a click into a new page in my forum, the link I want to open on that page takes not less than 3 to 5 minutes to get activated.  Can SMF please check.  

P.S.  A very happy 2013 to all at SMF  :)

The problem starts as soon as I enter the homepage and try to click on any of the boards, and then continues similarly.

Homepage:
http://muslimvilla.smfforfree.com/

I also observed today that that when I use Google chrome, it's much better.  But still persists with Mozilla Firefox.  However, Firefox seems to work okay on other sites.  So I'm wondering why this problem in my forum.

After going to homepage, if you try to click on one of the buttons on the bar on top - "home, search, arcade, link" etc. it doesn't get activated for a while.

Still the same unfortunately .. only happens when I browse with Firebox though the same browser seems okay in other sites like facebook etc.

I would try removing this header code.
Code: [Select]

<a name="fb_share" type="button_count" href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php">Share</a><script src="http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/connect.php/js/FB.Share" type="text/javascript"></script>
And see if it helps

Actually that share button has been there for a long time.  Never had any problems with it and it's helping to bring more people to the site.  But I'll remove and see if it makes a difference.

I noticed it slowed down a lot of my sites I just did an update on other software I made and seems to have helped.

I just removed that.  You are absolutely right SMF.  It did make a big difference for the better.  It's fine now  :)   

So I'll will have to delete that facebook button.  It was the one creating the problem. 

Thank u so much SMF.  That was brilliant!

Would there be any substitute for that button which might not interfere with the working of the website?
