It doesn't look like anyone has tried to help. I run JOSM on an Mac
upgraded to Yosemite. This was a fresh install of Yosemite. An upgrade to
Yosemite may behave differently.

Have you verified that java is installed? Use
https://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp - A browser that supports
flash is needed for this test. I used Safari to verify that the latest
version was installed.

See if you can run JOSM from the command line,
cd /Applications/JOSM.app/Contents/Java
ls *.jar #use the output for the next command. Replace josm-latest.jar with
your .jar file
java -jar josm-latest.jar

If running from the command line works, but not from Finder, I would remove
JOSM.app and reinstall.

Let me know if you need additional assistance.
