Hello

I want to capture the requests made by a website but they are not all displayed in Fiddler.

In Chrome Network inspector, every request which is not displayed in Fiddler has the attribute "memory cache" or "disk cache" in "Size" column.

How to capture them ?

The disk cache and momery cache are mechanism for optimization, so same requests are not executed multiple times. Instead of actual execution, the browser returns a result from a previous execution. That's why you do not see those requests in Fiddler - in fact there's no actual network session for them.
In order to disable the cache and capture the actual requests execution in Fiddler, you can use the Disable Cache checkbox in Chrome DevTools' Network tab. Also, I advise you to use new incognito instance every time - once you close it and open a new one, there will be no cache.
