The main app for bitwarden is accessible and works fairly well. I am having issues with the safari extension though. When I update or create a new password I cannot find where to add it to bitwarden. Apples keychain notification comes up but I just cannot seem to find the one for bitwarden. Does anyone who uses it have any suggestions on how to use it with safari?

I’m using Firefox. So, maybe you could try that?
Adding passwords generates a frame at the end of the DOM
When you add a new password or change a password, Bitwarden adds a new frame at the end of the DOM. This isn't always obvious because VoiceOver doesn't generally announce that anything has happened. Also, it assumes that you have unlocked the extension, if you haven't unlocked it yet, it won't offer to save anything. So, after entering in a user name and password and activating login, press vo+shft+end to go to the very end of the web page, or DOM, and you should find a frame. Interacting with this frame will give you options to save or update and then of course options to name/choose a folder.
Hope this helps.
Can't get it to work
I found the bitwarden info at the end of the page. I see a never, save and close buttons. When I hit the save button it asks me to enter in my master password. I do that and I am put back on the save button again. It never seems to save anything. If I activate the save button a second time, it asks me to put in my master password again. Once I do this my vault opens to a page that says there is no log in item for this site. This is getting frustrating because I can't seem to get the extension to work in safari. It seems to work fine in edge on my windows11 desktop.
