Drawer Navigation stops working on Android (dependent on users actions) #10048

Current behavior

Android user clicks on banner and completes payment details and returns to Account Dashboard screen and drawer no longer works. Can open and close but no selections take place.

If the user navigates to the same screen via the drawer options then everything is fine.

Have found it quite hard to setup a functional snack due to the libraries we use, but happy to supply a suitable apk with login credentials if required

GIST with nav structure => https://gist.github.com/markl-vesper/30d150f2d33900686da6c06c920f4381


Expected behavior

iOS user performs same navigation steps and all works fine afterwards



very hards to reproduce so happy to provide apk and login details

Couldn't find version numbers for the following packages in the issue:

  • @react-navigation/bottom-tabs
  • @react-navigation/material-bottom-tabs
  • @react-navigation/material-top-tabs
  • @react-navigation/stack

Can you update the issue to include version numbers for those packages? The version numbers must match the format 1.2.3.

The versions mentioned in the issue for the following packages differ from the latest versions on npm:

  • @react-navigation/native (found: 6.0.2, latest: 6.0.6)
  • @react-navigation/drawer (found: 6.1.4, latest: 6.1.8)

Can you verify that the issue still exists after upgrading to the latest versions of these packages?

Those packages are unused in this project

I can confirm the latest versions do not help the issue
