Default NullException when not Null?

Can someone please tell me why my debugger throws a NullReference Exception when clearly the value is not null. See picture.

It could be the .GetElementById that is returning Nothing.

HI PlausiblyDamp, I think you are right. In another thread I posted about timing between webpage loads and am using a method where I entered it to wait 10 seconds for the page to load,which is where the .GetElementById comes after. This doesn't always throw an error so I'm thinking it's because the page hasn't loaded yet. I've been trying to implement a suggestion by AtmaWeapon but I've been having trouble there too. I'm quite certain it's the load time of the webpage. I'm going to keep trying, thanks for your input.
