Unable to print using Brave or Chrome to Networked prints

I am unable to print using chrome and brave. the Browser crashes and noting prints. I have tracked down the error I received and am wondering if it could be related to the way our network printers are installed

Here is the information from the error via windows. This is only happening on network printers.

function Toggle(node) { if (!window.fullyLoaded) return; // Expand the branch? if (node.nextSibling.style.display == ‘none’) { // Change the sign from “+” to “-”. var tBodyNode = node.childNodes[0]; var trNode = tBodyNode.childNodes[0]; var tdNode = trNode.childNodes[0]; var bNode = tdNode.childNodes[0]; var textNode = bNode.childNodes[0]; if (textNode.nodeType == 3 /* Node.TEXT_NODE /) { var s = textNode.data; if (s.length > 0 && s.charAt(0) == ‘+’) { textNode.data = ‘-’ + s.substring(1, s.length); } } // show the branch node.nextSibling.style.display = ‘’; } else // Collapse the branch { // Change the sign from “-” to “+”. var tBodyNode = node.childNodes[0]; var trNode = tBodyNode.childNodes[0]; var tdNode = trNode.childNodes[0]; var bNode = tdNode.childNodes[0]; var textNode = bNode.childNodes[0]; if (textNode.nodeType == 3 / Node.TEXT_NODE */) { var s = textNode.data; if (s.length > 0 && s.charAt(0) == ‘-’) { textNode.data = ‘+’ + s.substring(1, s.length); } } // hide the branch node.nextSibling.style.display = ‘none’; } } // Toggle “System” element by default so that it’s default status is to hide its children function ToggleSystemElement() { var body = document.getElementById(“body”); var anchor = body.getElementsByTagName(“table”)[0]; Toggle(anchor); } // If binary data is present in event XML, show it in friendly form. function ProcessBinaryData(binaryString, binaryDataCaption, wordsFormatString, bytesFormatString, normalFont, fixedWidthFont) { var bodyNode = document.getElementById(“body”); // Add a

I am unable to print at all through the Brave browser. This has been going on for months now. I try printing through the Adobe PDF viewer and get “Something went wrong…” dialog messages. If I open in the desktop app, no issue. This happens with just trying to print a webpage. So this is not isolated to just extensions. I have removed the extensions and uninstalled Brave itself and still have the issues after reinstall.

I never did get any response from devs to this issue
