I tried this out and it worked for me on a new profile. Ioana, were you using an old profile? Also, did you uninstall Firefox/Fennec previously before installing Beta 4?
Comment 3 User image Ioana Chiorean 2011-02-20 22:57:53 PST
Yes, I've uninstall the older versions. Also I've cleaned the profile with command rm - r ~/.mozilla/fennec

Works for me too. Ioana, what happens if you restart the OS?
