Cold Fusion form reset button issues.

I have a CF form which is having issues w/ the reset button:

<form action="central_inv_contr_verify.cfm"  method="post"  id="registerForm" onreset="resetForm(this);">

Button code:       <input type="reset" name="Reset" value="Reset" />

The button works fine to reset the form fields while on the page...however after you submit and go to the verify page and come back to edit the page the reset button isn't working...Any ideas. I can add more information but not sure what else would be pertinent.

That's what's odd...nothing in the error log...it's as if after you return to the page the button just does nothing...no error thrown...works the verify...then go back to edit and the reset is dead

Ok...I think it has something to do w/ the hidden field added to keep the fields repopulated when returning to the form page from the verify page.

Here's the code used to keep the field populated and then the structure for the verify and reset buttons:

example fields:

      <tr>
                                      <td >
                                          <font face="Arial" size="2" color="#990000">
                                              <label for="Contact_Phone_Number">Phone:&nbsp;</label>
                                            <input type="text" name="Contact_Phone_Number" id="Contact_Phone_Number" min="0" step="1" minlength="10" maxlength="13"  tabindex="20" value="<cfif structkeyexists(session.invoiceDataContr, "PASS")><cfoutput>#session.invoiceDataContr.Contact_Phone_Number#</cfoutput><cfelse><cfoutput>#form.Contact_Phone_Number#</cfoutput></cfif>" required>
                                                  <font size="1" color="navy" title="Enter POC Phone, between 10 and 13 numbers without special characters.">
                                                  (help)
                                            </font>
                                        </font>
                                            <font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2" color="navy">&nbsp;&nbsp;
                                                  <label for="Contact_Fax_Number">Fax:&nbsp;</label>
                                            <input type="text" name="Contact_Fax_Number" min="0" step="1" id="Contact_Fax_Number" minlength="10" tabindex="21" maxlength="13" value="<cfif structkeyexists(session.invoiceDataContr, "PASS")><cfoutput>#session.invoiceDataContr.Contact_Fax_Number#</cfoutput><cfelse><cfoutput>#form.Contact_Fax_Number#</cfoutput></cfif>">

                                                  <font size="1" color="navy" title="Enter POC Fax, between 10 and 13 numbers without special characters.">
                                              (help)
                                              </font>
                                        </font>
                                      </td>
                                </tr>


         <tr>
              <td align="center" bordercolor="#333399" style="border-left:thin #333399 solid; border-bottom:thin #333399 solid; border-right:thin #333399 solid">
                  <font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2"><br/>
                            <input type="hidden" name="pass" value="pass" />
                          <input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Verify" />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
                          <input type="reset" name="Reset" value="Reset" />
                    <cfflush interval="100">
                          <br />
                          <br />
                    </font>
            </td>

This has recently been added fyi to the form so the problem resides in this I'm fairly sure but I don't understand why its not working when you go back to the page but works fine before hitting the verify button to go to the verification page.
however after you submit and go to the verify page and come back to edit the page the reset button isn't working

why do you need: onreset="resetForm(this);" at the first place IF your form is loaded after come back from the submission?

I'm not sure...what should it be?
try remove the onreset="resetForm(this);" from your page and see what will happen ?

new.txtold.txt

The two files attached are txt version of the cfm files guys...The older version was working correctly but after adding server side validation to the verification page the reset button is having issues. The newer version was modified to keep the text in the form fields when returning to the contribution page to edit the file. Any ideas on what's affecting the reset button functionality would be greatly appreciated. It works fine until you return to edit the form from the verify page then it dies.
can you try to open the JS/JavaScript section of Inspect Element of your web browser and check if there's any error when you clicked the Reset button there?

returns this:

The value of the property 'resetForm' is null or undefined, not a Function object
