I just installed 1.8.0, and the capture filter is missing. I checked this on a Windows 7 and a Windows XP PC. Is this a bug?

In the interface list: scroll to the right and you will see a column called "Capture Filter". Double click an interface to specify the capture filter for that interface. Since 1.7 it is possible to capture on multiple interfaces in parallel, hence each interface has it's own capture filter.

Changes have been made to the development version to add a global capture filter field. Note that according to the Wireshark release policy this is unlikely to go out into a 1.8.x release as only bugfixes are backported. You'll have to wait for 1.10, or use a development automated build of 1.9.x or compile from development sources:
