Hi there,

you are on the right track. The browser just thinks that the 
ssl-connection is not secure (but it is, trust me), because the 
ssl-certificates are signed by the issuer themselves. (Because we are on 
localhost and nobody gets them signed for local tests, because that 
costs money and is necessary, because you can trust your own computer / 

You can however ignore this. Usually you have two clickable buttons (At 
least in chrome and Firefox) one states something along the lines of 
"back", the other one something like "extended" or "further options" (I 
have German localization, so I can only guess what exactly is stated). 
It should be white. Click it. Click the option that states something 
like "proceed to insecure..."(in chrome) or "Add exception" (in 
Firefox). In chrome you should get to the ofbiz page now. in Firefox you 
have confirm once more.

I hope this solves your problem,

kind regards,

help me change which Java is running or is there a simpler way?
