iGrasp on Chrome

We have been advised by Lumesse (the providers of iGRasp – the University’s eRecruitment application) that they have had several reports of issues with pop-up windows showing blank pages. They have been able to identify that this was only happening in some versions of Google Chrome. On further investigation, they have identified that this was caused by an update made by Google, and unfortunately this had an impact on the iGRasp product.

As a result, if you are using Google Chrome and have experienced this issue then please update your Google Chrome Browser.

Could you also please:


  • close all chrome windows
  • go to task manager to make sure there are no chrome processes running
  • then re-launch it

If you have completed the above update and still have an issue when using Google Chrome, please do not hesitate in contacting
