I think you did a mistake ... There are a few things that confuse me here.

If I am right, you want to solve something like
 -div(grad(p))+div(U) = 0
  where U=(u1,u2,u3). Then just write
 -div(grad(p)) = -dx(u1)-dy(u2)-dz(u3);
  If you are solving an equation on 'p', it is the only unknown, so only 'p'
  may be on the left hand side of the equation. If it was a system, you should
  of course write
  in ff3d, PDEs unknowns have always to be given at the left hand side and
  data at the right hand side.

I really do not understand the terms dx(u1)*dx(u1) + ...
They are non-linear terms. Could you explain them to me?

Finally, as I see, you are not using 'dz' or 'u3'. Are you trying to solve a 
2D problem? In that case, ff3d may not be the right answer, it only solves 3D 
problems up to now ...
