Description of the issue: In Yahoo Mail when I try to print a PDF attachment Brave automatically opens the “save as” dialogue. I frequently have PDFs I need to view, so I do not want to have to go through saving it in order to view it. This only happens in the Brave browser.
Exact URL of the website in question:
Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no)
Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off?
Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no):
Does the site work as expected when using Chrome? Yes

This works for printing an email, but trying to open a pdf attachment it always goes to “save as” instead of opening the file.
These steps alone do not do the trick. However, it did cause a dialogue bar to pop up on the bottom in which you can select to automatically open file in a viewer. I did this and now I can open the pdfs directly without having to go through the “save as” dialogue. I was then able to go back to setting and re-enable “Ask where to save each file before downloading” and still skip the “save as” dialogue. Thanks for leading me to the solution. I just wish Brave would have put this directly in settings on how to handle pdfs.
