It seems that some packet is missing from the Wireshark capture

I am rather new to Wireshark, so I could possibly misinterpret the capture results. I accessed a website using Firefox (http://www.aljassimya-amateur-challen...), and captured the traffic both with DevTools as Har, and with Wireshark as Pcapng. But, in the Wireshark trace I could not find some packet, of those present in the DevTools trace. At first sight it seems that Wireshark missed them, or it did not dissect them correctly. I summarized the traffic in the Excel file, where I numbered the Firefox DevTools packets (GET) following their respective line number (1,2,3 etc). While for the initial HTTP Request issued by Firefox (no 1) I could find a correspondence in the Wireshark capture, namely the frames no. 36 (outgoing) and 59 (incoming), I could find no packets corresponding to the DevTools HHTP Requests numbered 2, 4 and 5, and I didn't investigate further. Packets missed or dissection error? I have ready the before mentioned attachments, please tell me where I can upload them: In any case you can duplicate the problem with the following link: http://www.aljassimya-amateur-challen... Thanks and regards

P.S. I tried to add a picture, but I got the error ">60 points required to upload files". What does it mean?

Due to incessant SPAM the ability to upload pictures\captures is restricted until users have accumulated enough points by adding comments and answers and accepting answers.

You can post your image or capture file on a public share and then post a link to it back here.

I don't know any free public site offering this service. If you can suggest one of them, possibly not requiring registration, it is welcome, since I don't want to proliferate giving away my userid/password and my personal data for a one-shot occasion. Discord is also good, provided it doesn't force me to give my telephone number, in order to upload files. If so, I'd need detailed directions on the exact way to accomplish this. After all, this is primarily in your interest, since I'm pretty sure this is a bug of yours. In fact, if in the DevTools trace there are a certain number of Get Http Requests, those same requests must appear in the Wireshark trace, and they are not.
