I hope you’re well today!
The error about source maps will not break any functionality about the site. The “source map” is a special file that is used only to make it easier for developers to check code in minified JS file in a human readable form. It does not affect in any way whether a given script works or not and doesn’t affect site in any way.
Furthermore, this “error” ONLY happens if you do have browser console/webdeveloper tools open. When you close it, it’s not happening. I mean – it is not “invisible” then but literally does not happen as browser does not look for such files then.
You can absolutely safely ignore it and it will not affect the site.
I understand that there are some issues with site after installing the plugin but they’d be caused by something else. I understand that when checking you have noticed this “source map” issue in browser but would you, please, describe what functionality (as you mentioned: “it breaks some functionality”) is broken and in what way?
I had problems with the functionality before but I can’t seem to replicate it now… I’ll enable the plugin again and keep testing. But if I go to Smush settings I’m getting seven warnings and three errors (for font files) now for example which is a bit much. Again, it could be because of my strict security settings but this is the only plugin that is giving me warning/error messages.
Anyway, I trust you when you say that map files are not important and won’t break any functionality. I’ll mark this as resolved.

Thank you for response!
As for font file – it may be related to strict security settings (though worse case scenario – should only affect how plugin looks and not how it works) but it may also be a matter of, e.g., unexpectedly broken installation. I think you could try re-installing the plugin first before re-enabling it.
If you come across any further issues, feel free to let us know and we’ll be glad to assist.
