In Mac OSX, unable to open a generic text file for editing with the following actions:
1. Double clicking on the file (having set Netbeans as the default program)
2. Dragging the file onto the icon
The only way that is not a pain to open is by dragging the file into an empty editor position. As there is only an empty editor when there are no files, this is not always useful.
I am able to open through the File menu, or through Favorites, but it is not very nice.
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 8.0 (Build 201403101706)
Operating System = Mac OS X version 10.9.4 running on x86_64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.8.0_11
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 25.11-b03

You can drag the file into editor area even if some files are already opened. At least it worked for me with Mac OS X 10.9.4 and NetBeans 8.0 (drop the dragged file on already opened document's editor pane).
