At idle, there is far less air going through the condenser and if it's clogged, the air that the cooling fan produces may not be enough to cool down the refrigerant. A possible cause of this issue would be that your cooling fan or A/C fan is not working. Other possibilities are that the compressor clutch is not cycling as intended or that the condenser might be blocked or dirty.

This could be overcharged system or other issues. Also you do not give year of your pathfinder. My 2003 had a variable displacement compressor and when this was not working properly it was very difficult to diagnose. Yes a new compressor did fix it.
