[xdebug-general] Eclipse is stuck at Waiting for Xdebug session... progress at 48%

Debugging with Eclipse and Xdebug does not appear to be working.
Breakpoints do not break; code just runs without breaking. I have read
of this problem in other forum posts but there is no solution that works
for me.

Here is what happens:
I launch an Eclipse Debug Configuration to start debugging.
Eclipse loads the starting file (which is HTML only in this case) in
Firefox with the Xdebug parameter:
Eclipse shows Launching: Waiting for Xdebug session... progress shows 48%
When I terminate the debugging session in Eclipse another copy of my
starting file is loaded in Firefox with another Xdebug parameter:
There does not seem to be a connection between Eclipse and Xdebug

I have checked everything I can think of.
netstat shows:
   TCP computer:0 LISTENING

I added the a log name to Xdebug but none of my attempts created any log
file and certainly not any entries in a log file.

I have focused on Xdebug as the problem because of other posts about
Eclipse Waiting on Xdebug 48% messages.
I tried Xdebug 2.4.1 but the results were the same: Waiting at 48%

Does anybody have any ideas what I should do?

More details about my setup:
