URGENT BUG FIX Saves to PDF instead of Printing Google Sheets and Docs

Description of the issue:
I want to be able to print directly to my printer when I am using the Google sheets website to print out a sheet out of my google workbook. instead it saves the file to PDF. I have to ope the PDF and then I can actually print.
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Go to ANY GOOGLE SHEET
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1nmC44qK8wWwXj4sS7MNJkDttTD_fc5JYO92X_IUMuv4/edit?usp=sharing

2.click print icon or press CTRL P
3.click next
4. gives a Save as instead of a print dialog

Expected result:
open an actual print dialog that can print to an physical printer that prints out onto paper.

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Version 1.32.106 Chromium: 96.0.4664.45 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
please fix this. others have posted about the same error before with no resolution. This fix is important for many people to be able to print google docs and print google sheets from brave. please don’t force me to switch to a different browser. Thanks for your time.

@desert_dweller5,
Thank you for reaching out.
When I use ctrl + p on Windows, I get the print dialogue as expected. Do you have any extensions installed in the browser at this time? I’m also curious if you get the same results by going to Menu --> Print...?

Hello,
it doesn’t print for me too.
But if I disable brave shields then it opens the print dialog correctly.
