Do you mean the fields in the packet details pane that have "[]" around them?

Not that I know of, that's part of the basic functionality of Wireshark.

Out of interest, why do you want to remove those fields from display?

I am verifying a scenario wherein when ALG is disabled,the info in FTP response packets from server to EPSV request from client is not NATTED by the intermediate device(say a Netscaler). But I find the NATTED IP details in packet but with [] braces.So wanted to confirm if it is a wireshark added info or is in the packet itself.
