Neither app on their own cause the issue but together a system starting at 338 meg usage is up to 794 in about 2 hours in slow increments of .1 mb other than standard apps that open in task bar etc these 2 combined were the only apps open when the memory leak occurs.

What version of firefox are you using? what does this have to do with
pidgin and what are you using to view your free memory? Please make sure
what is causing the leak by viewing top while running as you state. This
will allow us to determine what is the cause. please get a screenshot of
top during "leak"
