The option to clear a date input is replaced by a calendar icon, which makes it impossible to clear the field efficiently (with one/few mouseclicks/keypresses).
The only option I've found is by clicking a part of the date, press backspace (not even delete), tab, repeat.
The same happened to chromium, as discussed over here: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=1087501
Please reintroduce a clear option.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
Yes, please fix.
Agreed. Why remove the x that deletes the date??? Please put back.
Also, previously I could open the date-picker by clicking on the day, month or year. Now it only opens when I click the calendar icon. Why is it necessary to keep changing things, for the worse, when they are perfectly fine??
Yes, please put back!
I need this, too. It's very practical in some situations.
At least, there should be an option in the settings for that.
Any ideas when this issue is going to be addressed?
