Installing Java 1.8 *should* have replaced the Java preferences panel
completely. So I don't think Java 1.8 actually installed properly, both
because Freenet is clearly using 1.6, and because you can still see Java SE
6 in your preferences pane. That old Java Preferences pane should have been
Did Freenet install successfully, no errors? If it installed properly then
it just isn't running for some reason.
Since the rabbit icon is broken at the moment, you can start Freenet
1) Click the search icon in your menu bar
2) Type "terminal" and hit enter
3) When Terminal opens, type
This is largely an issue with the way Java currently works on Mac OS X, but
it's easy to solve.
You'll need to install Apple's Java system package  as well as Oracle's
Java 8 package (which you probably already have). For the moment, some Java
applications don't quite work properly
Please give the new native installer a try:

10.6 will be impossible going forward as Java 7 is going to be required to run
Freenet in the immediate future, and the minimum requirement to install Oracle
Java 7 is OS X 10.7.3.
There’s nothing else preventing Freenet itself from working, however our
installer/menu bar app is designed
It’s not entirely clear what you’re asking, are you having trouble downloading
things with Freenet?

There are a few potential causes, but I would suspect that your VPN wasn’t
actually connected the entire time you had Freenet running (this is a common

There should be an uninstaller in the Freenet installation folder, which should
be in your home folder unless you installed it somewhere else. Running the
uninstaller should take care of it for you.
Alternatively, you can do it manually: make sure Freenet isn’t running, then
