The look like fairly normal activities depending on where you are in the world. Some are likely your ISP, some are subnet traffic that is blocked in your machine but still recorded by Norton as to what was done with it. If you have 16 or 17 pages, I would suggest clearing the data as it will slow down loading history.
The history to be most concerned with is Quarantine, Intrusion prevention and resolved and unresolved threats. Even those can be cleared individually if there is nothing of interest.

The purpose of a firewall is to block unsolicited traffic from accessing your PC. What you are seeing is the log report on what the Norton Firewall has been blocking. There is a lot of background traffic on the internet and so you will see a lot of these types of entries. This is normal and just shows the firewall doing what it is supposed to do. If you had a router this traffic would be blocked at the router rather than by your Norton Firewall. This would add an extra layer of security if you want to incur the modest extra expense, but you are still safe as long as you have the Norton Firewall enabled.
