React native - objects are not valid as a React child in firebase version 5.9.0 Ask Question

I am displaying list of photos fetching from firebase database as in React-Native App in Expo, in photoList.js file,

contents of package.json are

  "main": "node_modules/expo/AppEntry.js",
  "scripts": {
    "start": "expo start",
    "android": "expo start --android",
    "ios": "expo start --ios",
    "eject": "expo eject"
  "dependencies": {
    "expo": "^32.0.0",
    "firebase": "^5.9.0",
    "react": "16.5.0",
    "react-native": "",
    "react-navigation": "^3.4.0"
  "devDependencies": {
    "babel-preset-expo": "^5.0.0"
  "private": true

according to its one solution, without downgrading firebase to 5.0.3 , by changing to @firebase/app , didn’t work.

import firebase from "@firebase/app";
import "@firebase/database";
import "@firebase/storage";
import "@firebase/auth";

my project-repo on GitHub.

How can I render a list of photos, without downgrading to older versions? because I think downgrading to older versions is not a future-proof and longtime solution.

also, I didn’t try this solution, screenshot,

because I am exporting firebase, auth, database, storage to othre components as,

export const f = firebase;
export const database = firebase.database();
export const auth = firebase.auth();
export const storage =;

How can I solve it?

Edit 1:

I tried downgrading versions to 5.0.3 , 4.9.1 , but the error still occurs
