I recently compiled tmux from source rather than going through homebrew for some reason I can no longer recall. At the same time, switching sessions via ^b sstarted to display all of the windows under each session, and not just the sessions thesmelves:

Session Switcher Now

Is there any way I can revert to the previous behaviour of only displaying sessions and not the windows belonging to them as well?

The default binding for Prefixs was changed from choose-session to the new command choose-tree (i.e. choose from the tree of sessions and windows).

To revert to the old behavior, simply rebind s to choose-session (e.g. in your .tmux.conf):

bind-key s choose-session
