Textboxes for admin and journalist passphrase fields should be even longer #3711
In SecureDrop trainings, admins and journalists are asked to create diceware passphrases, which can vary in length depending on which words entropy delivers and how many words they use. Currently, the passphrase field for the admin and journalist interfaces are long, but not quite long enough for most users' passphrases. See discussion in #2288 for the rationale behind wanting passphrase textbox fields to be as long
User Research Evidence
This design recommendation is informed by direct observation of SecureDrop users.

I think we can safely assume that usernames will be shorter compared to passphrases. So how about we have username and OTP(65% - 35%) in one row and passphrase(100%) in next row? The only trouble I have in this idea is generally I feel in UX, OTP is the last field that someone fills in. But UI wise might make sense.
