Are you using a fixed ip address for your computer and REGULAR ip port forwarding?

Or did you use UPnP port-forwarding...or worse yet, port triggers?

Reason being, is not all 'unfirewalled' states are equal. Definitely with port triggers and possibly with UPnP port-forwarding, the first firewall tests may fail as traffic is only forwarded AFTER triggering conditions occur...the first (few?) packets may be dropped before your router starts forwarding properly. So although the next series of checks for firewall status clear your connection as "not firewalled", many other peers/seeds in the torrent (which are likely firewalled themselves) have already written off your connection as "FIREWALLED!" even though you see a green light.

I've seen times where I wouldn't get uploads from others (my downloads) for as much as an hour till they possibly retried my connection again. However I usually get uploads from someone even if most don't upload to me.

...I've noticed LOTS of peers/seeds that never upload much or anything to me. Even on 1+ GB file archives, they might only send me 0.6 MB at most -- despite being connected to me for 10+ hours straight.
