I have no answer for creating forms, but for filling out forms the Linux
version of Adobe's Acrobat reader works fine under FreeBSD. I've used
it to fill out govt tax forms from www.irs.gov. See the acroread5 port.

The message itself is not an error, just Mozilla's comment that there is
no *other* copy of Mozilla already running. If the Mozilla window never
appears you may well have a font problem - check the archives for the
