2 of 5 Points, not optimized but usable, maybe switching between portrait and panorama mode needed

Most, possibly all functionality seems to work. Tested also with YubiKey. Usable in landscape mode.

Flatpak:

Flathub: https://flathub.org/apps/details/com.bitwarden.desktop

# Install Bitwarden desktop
flatpak install flathub com.bitwarden.desktop
Firefox extension as desktop shortcut:

If you are using Firefox, you can install the official bitwarden extension and make a desktop shortcut to the extension url. This has the advantage of providing you with a secure vault that is 100% adapted to small screens, through Firefox.

You need to follow these steps :

  1. install the firefox extension here
  2. open the sidebar (for instance on the bookmarks view at first). You can open the sidebar with 'ctrl + b' with the terminal keyboard (click the world icon) or by clicking on the hamburger menu > library > bookmarks > bookmarking tools. Normally, you opened the bookmarks sidebar (if you have a physical keyboard, you can directly open the bitwarden view with the shortcut 'shift + alt + U')
  3. Then, go to the Bitwarden view instead of bookmarks by clicking on “Bookmarks” and by selecting “Bitwarden” in the sidebar
  4. log in to your account, if it's not already done
  5. long press (or right click) on “My Vault” and then select “copy link location”. The link you copied should look like: moz-extension://RANDOM_NUMBERS_AND_LETTERS/popup/index.html#/tabs/vault
  6. create a desktop icon in ~/.local/share/applications/ (for instance : ~/.local/share/applications/bitwarden.desktop), following the example provided below:
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Bitwarden
Comment=Manage your passwords
Exec=firefox --new-window PAST_THE_URL_YOU_COPIED_HERE
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Icon=bitwarden
Categories=Network;WebBrowser;
StartupWMClass=Firefox-esr

Now you have a shortcut in your app drawer to a mobile optimized view of your Bitwarden vault, that opens in Firefox as a new window.
