To get back to a blank form after submission, edit form options as follows.
Go to "Actions" tab, then "On screen notification" section.
There set
  1. "Display message" to "No"
  2. "Redirect" to "Yes"
  3. "Thank you message menu item" to the page where the form is.
This causes that after a successful submission the browser is redirected once again to the same page where the form is, and the form is shown blank again.

Please note that this applies only if the form occupies the main content of the page, for example if you use the Fox Contact menu item, or if you put a Fox Contact module somewhere at the top of the page.

However, we strongly discourage the use of this configuration, since it breaks basic UX principles and common sense, and nullifies your efforts to create a reasonable conversion funnel.
From the user's point of view, offering him a blank form at the end of the submission process, it's counter-intuitive like a salesman that says "welcome" when you have just paid, and are in the process of leaving the store.
