Unable to Print to Printer or PDF from Brave ad of 3/19


#1

No Screenshot Available as Nothing Happens

Windows 10

I have this same problem as well. Just started yesterday 3/19.
Windows 10

Brave: 0.21.24
V8: 6.5.254.36
rev: 19c78a1624118e344852c4c0f44c0d45be841b5f
Muon: 4.9.3
OS Release: 10.0.16299
Update Channel: Release
OS Architecture: x64
OS Platform: Microsoft Windows
Node.js: 7.9.0
Brave Sync: v1.4.2
libchromiumcontent: 65.0.3325.162

Detailed Steps:

  1. Tried printing form site. Nothing happens, nothing in printer queue
  2. Tried printing to pdf. Document name exists but file will not open (FoxIt PDF Printer)
  3. Restarted computer, still unable to print
  4. Used a different browser and printed to printer and to pdf from the same site.
  5. Printing to printer and to pdf worked from different browser.

I love Brave but am unable to use at the moment due to this issue. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you!

@LaurenWags . I just did some testing on Mac. it generates the PDF, but it’s blank (2KB). Did it 2 times.


#7

@config.t Could you post your steps and possibly the site you used? I haven’t been able to reproduce.

Thanks,
Lauren

@LaurenWags
I tried printing the base home page of https://community.brave.com
File > Print
In pop-up Chose PDF in lower corner

Save file as test2.pdf

Thanks @config.t - I’ve tried those steps a number of times but without reproducing. What version of MacOS are you on?

Lauren

OS X version 10.13.3


#11

Thanks @config.t - I’ll find someone here with that version and ask them to try.

Best,

Same issue exactly, but on a Windows 10 machine. I can print from Microsoft edge and other apps w/o issue. Whatever was updated doesn’t like the print server.


#13

Im running win 10 and also got this isse when trying to print PDF docs. Happned after last update on Brave. Please fix this asap cuz Im running Brave on my company computer.


#14

Still an issue 3/27
I run Win 10
Works on every browser but Brave


#15

I have the same problem, not able to print from Brave. I can print using others like Chrome or FireFox. I am using Windows 10. This just started with the latest update from Windows. Was working fine until then. I have contacted support from Brother, I use two printers. They could find nothing wrong on their end. Since it works on other browsers it has to be Brave. Is there a fix yet?


#16

Adding to the list. Like others, unable to print from Brave but can print from other browsers - whether to device or PDF file. Using Windows 10, and noticed this issue after last update to Brave.

I am also having the same problem as everyone else in the thread. Also using Windows 10, also able to print from other browsers.


#19

Same here. I use Brave with an online inventory program. First I lost my ability to copy and paste from Brave, now I can’t print anything. I’m going to have to go back to Firefox.

I am unable to print from the browser as well. I held mail on USPS and the confirmation won’t print from the print button on their website.
