i have not tried anything when not plugged in, but when i am plugged into the power adapter i notice that my screen changes brightness and when i go from something like firefox, back to the desktop, it gets darker on desktop. ok...

im at the desktop, and i set the brightness to full
i go to firefox, set brightness to full
switch back to desktop and my screen automatically gets darker by, like, 3 units
i do not touch the brightness levels, and go back to firefox, and the screen auto brightens back up, like, 2 units

does anyone else have this problem?!?!

how do i fix this? any suggestions?

Go to Settings-->Displays-->Uncheck "Automatically adjust brightness as ambient light changes".
