Default Works in IE but not in FF

I have the following function that works fine in IE but it gives and error in FF. What can I do to make this work in both browsers?.

The error that FF gives is the following:
quote:event is not defined

mtdChecaTecla()pestanas.js (line 28)
onkeydown(keydown charCode=0, keyCode=97)peemgral01.jsp (line 1)
[Break on this error] if ( event.altKey && event.keyCode != 18 ) {
var mbFrameEncontrado = false;
var lObjFramePestanas = new Object();
var lObjFormPestanas  = new Object();

function mtdChecaTecla()    {

    if (  event.altKey  &&  event.keyCode != 18 )    {

        var lObjFrames = top.frames;
        var lbOprimioAtl = event.altKey;
        var liAsciiTecla = event.keyCode;

        mtdBuscaFrame( lObjFrames );

        if ( mbFrameEncontrado )    {

            lObjFramePestanas.mtdChecaTecla( lbOprimioAtl, liAsciiTecla )

            mbFrameEncontrado = false;

"event" object will not be availble directly in javascript when you use FF it works only with IE, you've to pass it as argument to the java script method while calling it. Try like as follows
function mtdChecaTecla(event) {
and in the html/jsp try like
<input type="text" onkeyup="mtdChecaTecla(event);" />

Hope that solves it.
