"Smart" Firewall

Is anyone else experiencing this? This issue has been around for a few months now and its surprising that Symantec has not fix it yet

Why does Norton Security block a benign windows store app from accessing the internet in BOTH windows 8.1 and windows 10?
And the worst part is
1) It claimed i blocked the app?
2) there is no way to unblock it?
 

It seems that the whole security suite was rushed with all these confusing UI elements slipshod together in a haste.
