      Description

      In a large number of forms, there is a "Reset" button, which resets the contents of the form and empties them.

      This is not a common button to find on most forms out there in the internet anymore, therefore I would suggest to remove it completely from the forms.

      However, I can see that it may have its uses on some forms for others, therefore maybe it is not feasible to remove it everywhere. But there is still one place, where I would still suggest a change: It is a confusing to have a "Reset" Button on the Reset password form, which is not resetting the password but instead empties the form.

      Therefore, I would suggest to:

      1. Remove the "Reset" Button there
      2. Rename the button to "Empty this form" or something similar to avoid this confusion

      But my preferred way of resolution would be to remove the button from ALL forms, not just this one.
