As long as you disclosed this job when you applied, you should not have anything to be concerned about. One of the most common reasons for job offers being rescinded is if the new hire did not disclose something about their history when applying and it is later discovered on a background check. In most cases, all that will be discovered in a background check is your dates of employment and why you left the job. The only thing that may cause problems for you is if the reason you were let go from the previous job creates a significant liability or risk for your new employer (i.e. being let go for theft when you would be responsible for company assets on your new job, etc.). This aside, since you were honest when applying, you should be alright.
