I solved it by looking for incompatible add ons (in JIRA admin, or <JIRA root>/plugins/servlet/upm). In my case there was the Jenkins Plugin for Jira which was enabled and showed Screen Shot 2015-10-23 at 9.09.00 AM.png. I disabled the plugin and all the JIRA functions worked again as expected.

Thank you. It works!
