[Gimp-user] Can't move images that are faint, and can't make them darker using contrast.

I've noticed that if I try to move a layer that is really faint I can't. It
seems like it's too pale for the move function to "grab" onto - the cursor is
supposed to change from the little hand pointing an index finger to a 4-way
arrow when it "grabs" onto the current layer that is to be moved but when the
layer is really pale the cursor never changes. Sometimes I can fix this by
decreasing the brightness and/or jacking up the contrast of the layer but with
this one image I'm working on the contrast isn't working. When I'm moving the
Contrast slider bar up I can see the layer change but as soon as I hit "OK" it
reverts right back. I change it with Brightness but not Contrast. I've tried
first making the layer darker using Brightness then increasing the contrast but
the contrast still keeps reverting when I hit "OK".
What am I not understanding here? Any ideas?

I've attached an image of the layer that's giving me problems.
