Getting Error: "<apex:component> is required and must be the outermost tag in the markup at line 1 column 1" on VF page

I'm trying to create a VF page to launch a flow, but I can't get past this error after hitting the save button:
Error: <apex:component> is required and must be the outermost tag in the markup at line 1 column 1
Here is my VF page:
<apex:page standardController="Opportunity">
    <flow:interview name="New_Quote_Wizard" finishLocation="{!URLFOR('/a1m')}">
        <apex:param name="OppID2" value="{!Opportunity.Id}"/>
    </flow:interview>
</apex:page>

I'm following th example in the documentation, and this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRdyCLJ-4l4 (timestamp: 28:11)

Hi,

It is an issue with Google Chrome. I do not get the issue when i try to update the page in Firefox. The version of Chrome I saw the issue was 33.0.

Hope this helps !!

Swayam, thanks so much for that quick tip! It saved fine in Edge. Apparently still an issue at version 50..
