Fennec is sucessfully updated from Alpha to Beta but it does not open after installation of beta.
When I tap on the firefox icon to open the application, it seems that it is opening firefox but it comes back to the android desktop. It does not open firefox.

To make things clear, this was a manual update. That means I downloaded the alpha from releases folder on ftp server. Then I downloaded the beta and installed beta on the top of alpha.

I can confirm this, here's what I see in my log:

I can work around this by going to settings->Applications->Manage Applications->Firefox and clicking the "Clear data" button. Of course this blows away the user's profile.

application.ini isn't updating.
the problem seems to be application.ini. Deleting that allows us to run.

I'm seeing the same  "Application not installed" issue. Should a new bug be filed for this or has it been filed already?
File a new bug.

Just verified this on my tegra board. This specific issue is fixed.
Status: RESOLVED → VERIFIED
Ok, I filed bug  602272 for it.
Also, I'd like to mention to please refrain from verifying a bug that you set to resolved. Fortunately, Naoki and I can verify this is not happening on the Nexus One and Droid 2. Follow up will need to be done for martijn's and matt's issue in bug 602272
Mozille/5.0 (Android; Linux armv71; rv:2.0b7pre) Gecko20101005 Firefox/4.0b7pre Fennec/4.0b1

Verified on droid 2 with these conditions :
1) alpha 1: blank profile, still running in background -> beta 1 rc 2 = works
2) alpha 1: profile w/ bookmarks, still running -> beta 1 rc 2 = works, see bookmarks
3) alpha 1: profile w/ sync account, still running -> beta 1 rc 2 =works, sync account listed.
4) alpha 1: no profile, not running -> beta 1 rc 2 = works
5) alpha 1: sync, not running -> beta 1 rc 2 = works, sync account listed.

Note:  
for condition 3, 5 : unfortunately alpha 1 sync doesn't work with current sync servers.
