Error: The specified child already has a parent. You must call removeView() on the child's parent first.

Confused as to what is causing this error in my application. I think it maybe because I'm calling multiple views at the same time?

The error occurs when you move from the first tab to any of the other tabs (second and third) More so I'm focusing on the third tab (MarketplaceFragment) as that is the one I was working on when the error occurred.

I've attached a repository of the project below!

Solved! The problem was I was using two webViews, I just had to rename the webView on the MarketplaceFragment to rootView instead of mView! :)
