Comments indicate that most of the time, this issue is caused by different plugins (or in the interaction between core and plugins). Therefore I'm resolving this bug report against core, as there does not seem to be a specific fixable bug there.
However, it's clear that core needs an improvement to be more robust, given the number of related reports, watchers, and comments. I filed that improvement as JENKINS-25287.
Regarding specific plugins, consider filing a bug against the specific plugin, when disabling or uninstalling that plugin makes the problem go away (bonus: Does enabling it again make the problem appear?). Include as much diagnostic information as you're capable of gathering (browser script console errors, things you discover in the JS debugger, exact versions of plugins and Jenkins, ...) to assist the authors in resolving the problem.
