It just means that the receiver acknowledged a packet that you did not capture. So your capture device wasn't fast enough to capture all packets, but the real communication worked fine.

problem is that it is highly unlikely that any packet is lost. So I'd like to know what are the other possible answers. Mybe firewall somehow messed communication? Or WS does not interpret something correctlly?

The packet was not lost. You just did not capture it. But you captured the acknowledgement for it, so Wireshark tells you that there was something that wasn't captured but not lost.

Your firewall is fine, Wireshark is fine. Your capture device is too slow.
