By default Ubuntu has no listening applications so it isn't required unless you install something you want to filter (SSHD for example).
Ubuntu includes Uncomplicated Firewall (UFW) which is a command line interface to IPTables that can be used to setup a firewall. If you want a GUI there is GUFW which is available at: http://gufw.tuxfamily.org/index.html
I would avoid Firestarter since it is no longer maintained and has issues with flipping between different interfaces (Wired and Wireless for example).
