What exactly happened after you typed "java -jar new_installer_offline.jar" ? 
What error message did you see? What version of Java do you have installed on 
the Mac? Freenet needs Java 1.5 now, some versions of OS/X might have 1.4?

This is very strange. If you go to Status and then to "Connections to 
Strangers", there are no connections? Are there any nodes listed as 
"disconnected", "busy", "backed off", etc?

Can you post your wrapper.log? (File in the dir Freenet is installed into)
