Search engine brought me to this Q&A but the solution is totally different. It’s posted just in case it helps others.

This error was searched:

Uncaught SyntaxError: '' string literal contains an unescaped line break

The line in question contained:

    alert('validUrlSyntax: ' + validUrlSyntax +
          ' validUrlExists: ' + validUrlExists +
          ' time to check: ' + elapsedTime + ' milliseconds`)

Notice the last apostrophe is really a back tick. Changing the back tick to an apostrophe ' solved the problem.
