The application tries to open, but remains black screen for like 5 seconds and it closes after
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?

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?
