    ReportViewer client printing feature relies on ActiveX which is not supported by any browser except IE 9 (or earlier), that's why you do not get print button when Chrome, Firefox or IE10/11 browser is involved. For printing, you should export to PDF and let the user to print it. That's the "manual" approach. If you are able to write some .NET code, then you can do that programatically as described here or do it by yourself.
