    I'm afraid that it is not possible to remove that pop-up, it is something that is handled by the Browser. So it can be disabled in the Browser by checking "Prevent page from creating additional dialogs":

    But that's only for that session, it will re-appear later, on a refresh of the page for example.

    Also, you can try with a workaround provided by my colleague here https://www.jotform.com/answers/249099-How-to-clear-form-without-the-Popup-Confirmation

    It basically creates a new button that will do the Clearing without the pop-up.

    Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thank you!

    Unfortunately, there is no way to disable that pop-up unless you download the Source code of the form (https://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form) and disable it through the code.

    You can check more in this thread from my colleague: https://www.jotform.com/answers/1033737-Clear-Reset-Start-Over-button-no-Submit-button-no-popup
