This problem was resolved. I was able to get SP to work with Kerberos. It turns out there was a problem with our load balancer. When I edited my local host file and pointed it to a WFE, bypassing the load balancer, the problem disappeared!

Dibyendu is suggesting the problem might be Kerberos because that was in fact my issue (see the linked post). Once I flipped it to NTLM, the problem went away.

I called Microsoft and the engineer determined the problem was being caused by Kerberos. He said the SPNs were probably not set up correctly. Once I switched the site to NTLM, the problem went away. I don't have the option to post this as the answer for some reason...

After restarting the DC cluster yesterday, the problem seemed to have gone away. However, the problem just came back this morning.

Some sites do have jquery, but most don't. The problem even occurred while using OOB pages like editing a list view

I did shut down MDS on one site due to problems with editing and saving list views. I think my problem pointed more to the DC, however, but I'll keep this in mind.

OK, I have been in the site for about 20 minutes clicking all around and it seems like the problem is gone since I stopped the Distributed Cache. I'll make this as the answer and post later what I did to resolve it. Thanks again Steven!

I stopped the Distributed Cache on the 2 WFEs. I see if the problem goes away and get to you. Thanks!

I had some errors in the ULS about Distributed Cache, but I ran use-cachecluster, checked the health, and everything looked good with it. I don't recall the errors now. I didn't mess with Get-SPSecurityTokenServiceConfig. I'll check your links.

I will look into all of these. It seems like when I take the account out of the local admin group, the app pools stop. Thanks.

comment SharePoint farm installation and partitioning
Thanks (again) Waqas! How about the search server? I am reading about indexed partitions, but I don't know if that is the same as having physical partitions.

Didn't see the last comment about user accounts. That is what I kind of thought. Thanks!

comment SharePoint install account
Right, the install account will have nothing to do with SP. It will be more like a server admin acct. I guess my question was whether a security group could be used instead of an "install" domain account. We will definitely have the password change policy on the install account.

comment SharePoint install account
Thanks for the reply. Yes, it is on-premise. There is confidential info in our SP instance and we are publically trade company, thereby under SOX. I guess changing the password is the best option, I just preferred a security group...

Wait, that was the problem. Can't have two answers I guess. I checked it again. Sorry!

comment SharePoint 2013 service accounts
It shows as marked when I look at it. Could it be because I marked the other one as the answer too?
