What is your Browser preference set to? Tools -> Preferences -> Browser
Also please clarify your version of "gaim" as Fedora 7 Test 4 included a Beta
version of Pidgin 2.0.0 and no Gaim at all.
I see the problem, there was no default, it was set at manual.
$ rpm -q pidgin
I don't see how it could be defaulting to manual with no browser command
specified, so I can't "fix" this (and I've seen no other reports of it ever).
