if you have a pop up blocker, then you need to turn this off, once you do that a box will open, click it then fill out form. Then print it off.

It's not the pop up blocker. When you start to fill it out, you put your name in , thats ok, you put your address in, thats ok, you put your contact details in...and that replaces your address and puts your contact details everywhere else
