I tested this issue using latest Nightly 59.0a1 on Mac 10.11 and Windows 10 x64 and during the verification, I discover that if I want to select a card credit on the payment method menu and then I want to clear form, I can't clear all the sections.

Ray, can you help to verify this bug ? Thx

I first noticed that the website use intangible inputs instead of type="hidden" to get rid of autofill feature, and I would suspect some kind of two-way data binding behind the scene messes this up.

<input class="visually-hidden" autocomplete="shipping given-name" tabindex="-1" data-autocomplete-field="first_name" data-honeypot="true" aria-required="true" size="30" name="checkout[shipping_address][first_name]" data-com.agilebits.onepassword.user-edited="yes" type="text">
Remove V2 flag. Just had a brief discussion with Luke, and we think this should related to a long-standing debate about the strategy against hidden(or visually hidden) fields. So, in near future, no straight fix to this. Thanks.

Reproducible on the latest Nightly 79, attached screen recording for reference.
Also, the autofill highlight is missing for the auto-filled fields.
