Stackoverflow problem

Visual Studio 2013 UP5 + Web Essential's (v. 2.6.36) generated files are invalid in "Google Chrome", however it is valid in "Firefox". Due to this it became impossible to debug less files in google chrome.

failed to parse sourcemap

Currently, I am using Web Essential 2.6.36 (+ Visual Studio 2013 Up5). I can disable the source map from google chrome's developer's setting. Which will remove those errors, however still we cannot debug less files and change the style. Which is a terrible problem.

Is there a fix for this problem? I tried the answer from SO, but it didn't work for me.

@aukgit Sorry for the typo. I meant fix. Updated my comment.

No not yet.

Any word on this yet? Saving the file as UTF-8 without signature fixes the source map file not being parsed by Chrome (Version 55.0.2883.87 m). Firefox parses the source map file just fine without the encoding workaround.
