I was trying to debug webpack generated application and webpack generates big JSON file called app.map. I was getting this error: Source map error: SyntaxError: JSON.parse: bad control character in string literal at line 1 column 790260 of the JSON data Resource URL: https://test.sceal.dev/js/app.bundle.js Source Map URL: app.map[Learn More] I was trying everything and nothing worked until I found out that if I disable fiddler and add test.sceal.dev in hosts it works. So JSON file is somehow modified by fiddler which makes it unusable. It should never actually modify the request unless I tell it to. Am I missing something simple or is this really a bug?
