Not much. Both captures look mostly the same:

C: HTTP GET /OrderAppWeb
S: Error 403 Unauthorized
   WWW-Authenticate: NTLM

This is normal but 3 seconds later the web server closes the connection
which is not normal. The client should then do:

C: HTTP GET /OrderAppWeb
   WWW-Authenticate: NTLM <base64encodeddata>

I do see some jCIFS traffic in the Firefox capture but it is unrelated
to the HTTP request in it. Some of the requests are pretty spread out
though. For example the SMB negotiate request is at 57.052 but the
SMB session setup is at 60.452. That's a looooong time. Is the server

What is your http server, container, server os, etc...
