I had this 'problem' too. If you use different fonts for different modes, obviously the fonts in the buffer will change when you switch modes. Setting the options for each mode to match, or use defaults, will fix it.

Tabs are another matter. I suspect many Emacs users have turned them off, and I don't know of another fix. The thought of having tabs for the dozen or so buffers I'm visiting at the moment is not appealing!
