Does this work?  

var InnerScript = MasterScriptIns.innerHTML;
if(InnerScript != null)
{
    var Index = InnerScript.lastIndexOf("WebForm_AutoFocus('");
    if(Index == -1)
    {
        window.focus();
        return false;
    }
}

Hi

This means that MasterScriptIns.innerHTML returns something different than string.

You have to make a check after each assignment to see what have you gotten.

you could restate this as follow:
MasterScriptIns = MasterScriptIns.nextSibling; // you have to check after this assignment.
var InnerScript = MasterScriptIns.innerHTML || ""; // in the case InnerScript will be empty string and won;t fire the error

Open in new window
