    how to fix 'auto brightness'?
    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".
