yes this is possible. Git repositories are most often accessible via multiple protocols and one of them is http (which will go through your firewall).
Some projects describe in their documentation (e.g. from where to fetch the sources) only the git protocol, but it is always worth to try it with the http protocol. If the projects doesn't publish explicitly their http URLs then just exchange in the URL git:// by http://. Sometimes you have to add the ".git" suffix to the URL.
Example: if you want to the the sources for EGit and JGit find on our http://wiki.eclipse.org/EGit/Contributor_Guide the URLs for the git protocol and exchange git with http. E.g. http://egit.eclipse.org/egit/parallelip-jgit.git
- no write operations (e.g. git push) with http possible. For write you need ssh communication which may be blocked by your firewall.
- suboptimal performance of http (see bug 291002)
