When ctrl+backspace is pressed in mozilla thunderbird an error is triggered sometimes randomly. It appears to be trying to calculate the length of an object of type None.

Input: kb(laptop):control+backspace

This is due to a bug in Thunderbird. I filed MozillaBug:935375.

Out of interest, what version of Thunderbird are you using? I can reproduce this with nightly, but Mick can't seem to reproduce it with Thunderbird 24.

I am using version 24.3.1. I have a gpg plugin installed that seems to sometimes make nvda announce things weird like blank for the last word in a message. I wonder if this could have to do with it.
