React Native – Objects are not valid as a React child (found: object with keys {$$typeof, type, key, ref, props, _owner, _store})…

Objects are not valid as a React child (found: object with keys {$$typeof, type, key, ref, props, _owner, _store})

This annoying problem I bumped into the other day. First, I thought I made a mistake in the JSX snippets somewhere trying to render some sort of object or something invalid in some way. After some time debugging and reviewing my react-native code I was not able to find any mistakes. Then I did some googling. In the end, I was able to find the reason. The problem was caused by the latest version of the firebase import in my application.

What I did to get rid of this annoying and somewhat not very helpful error message is to revert back to an older version (5.0.3) of firebase.

Hope this helps.
Good Luck,
