Lost in a sercurity forest. help?

running Mac OS 10.8.4 64bit

java (build 1.8.0_45-b14)


IDE's: eclipse and android studio

ok so i'm new to java program/applet dev and i'm trying to load my HelloWorld applet in firefox however java sercurity settings block the loading of the applet and appletviewer doesn't display anything just pops up in the Dock and then closes.

adding a local exception using file:// would prolly do it but it's listed as a security risk and i'm sure there's a way to check applets without opening a hole. so the question is... is there anyway to list local machine as trusted? or Is there a small applet enviroment that i can use without downloading another big IDE? Open to suggestions

p.s. i googled for a bit and came up empty for a solution to my problem. although i did find the answers to many other problems.
