you can try looking for the Credentials field. I did a quick video if it helps

In brief, no. Passwords sent over the Internet intelligently are encrypted before transmission so that unauthorized eavesdroppers cannot obtain them in this manner. That being the case, you will not see any passwords at all, except for those that are transmitted in the clear (ftp passwords, for example). Are you sure that the passwords you are trying to see are actually transmitted in cleartext in an http-protocol packet? My guess is that they are not.
