That's Gecko, not the X server.  It has pretty aggressive image caching
and stores the pixmaps on the server, not in its own memory.  If you
shut down that process and the X server returns to something sane it's
not an X leak.  (It's even arguable that if it doesn't shrink it's still
not an X leak but is a fragmented allocator, but that's another
discussion.)
