Do they lose brightness over time like regular flourescent lights do?

They do but only towards the end of their life.

Yes, as do incandescents ( at least the GLS type ). I think both types should be
rated in lumens at 50% lifetime.

It flickers when off, you have electric issues in your house. You dont
know much do you. CFLs consume 75% less and last longer, I have at
least 70 from HD running 2 years with two failures in buildings. HDs
have a 7 yr warranty. And you didnt know Incandesant bulbs are the
scam, they only emit about 4-6% of the energy used as light you see,
the rest is heat, so 10 100w incandesants equal a 950 watt heater, now
thats smart. In summer you run the AC to remove heat Incandesants
made, what a waste of everything. Check your voltage and try a
different brand bulb.

A lighted switch will do that, the neon lamp is across the switch
contacts.
