Question: 

What happened to my tabs in the side Pane? Why do they look like massive columns?

Answer: 

With the slick new updates to the Komodo IDE UI, a problem has arisen when you switch Komodo IDE 8a side pane tabs to "Icon in tabs" under Preferences->Appearance->Left/Right pane layout.

This gets Sync'd to your Komodo IDE 7 profile as well. Komodo IDE 7 has no idea what you're talking about and reacts accordingly; it creates tabs the size of index fingers (window height and personal anatomy dependent).

This is easily remedied. First turn off Sync in Komodo IDE 8a once you have imported all your settings. Then simply revert the changes to your prefs. Preferences is under the Komodo menu option on OS X and under Edit in Linux and Windows.

Have a great holiday!
