The first question is do you have central AC that runs through the same ducts and shares the blower with the furnace? If this is the case the condensation water could be condensation coming off the evaporator coil that is not draining properly (there is a pan underneath it with a drain that could be plugged) or is being redirected by frost on the coil.

You may also have excessive condensation coming in from one of the lines between the outside compressor and indoor evaporator coil.

There may also be a condensate pump that is malfunctioning or leaking hose coming to or from the pump.

Also, has it been cold recently and the furnace has come on? If this is the case there could have been condensation build up during warm spells and then cool spells. Importantly, if the furnace has been running and there is water building up you may want to have the secondary heat exchanger (assuming it has one) checked for a crack as this could be a potentially dangerous situation.

Lastly, since we are in a time of transition it is hard to say exactly what the problem could be. You should probably call in a certified HVAC contractor to diagnose and repair the issues. Do not try to work on the evaporator coil or the furnace yourself if you are not experienced with HVAC repair as it could be dangerous and make matters worse.

To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.  To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
