I already have a pcap file. I know that when I enter a website, my userid and password is sent through unsecured http protocol. I would like to extract the cookies from the pcap files and import them into my browser(Firefox) to observe what happens. I already filtered out using http in wireshark, but still I get a lot of packets. How do i extract the exact cookies and import the cookies in my Firefox?

In the capture file you'll be looking for the Set-Cookie HTTP header sent from the server in the response to a request. To import cookies into Firefox you would most likely need some extra Firefox plugin. Depending on the way the Firefox plugin works you'll have to work out how to get the HTTP header data from the output into the format it understands.
