When I do the keybind (Control + P) or press the print icon in google apps (google docs, drawings, etc) it automatically downloads a pdf instead of opening the print menu. Chosen solution

Printing on any other site pops up with the printing options. Only on google apps does this happen, including gmail.

This problem is non-existent on Google Chrome and Edge. It does persist on Brave although. Haven't tested any other browsers.

I see the same behavior on Word online. see screenshots Don't think it's an issue since Chrome and Edge are base on Chromium. Your test with Brave is a good indicator that this option just works better in Chromium.
