Put a sheet metal screw between the mirror and mirror body below the mirror. This will allow the mirror to still break free and swing if you hit something kinda hard, but will keep it from moving freely. There is no other way to tighten it. It's just a case of the spring becoming fatigued.

Correct it is a friction fit. What worked for me was the following:
1 Lift the moving part of the plastic mirror housing. Wiggle it with your hands or tap underneath with a plastic mallet until the plastic tubular shaft is exposed.
2. Wrap electrical tape around the shaft one or two layers.
3. Push the moveable part is the mirror housing down over the shaft and it should be good to go.

SOURCE: The glass in the driver side rear view mirror is

The driver and passenger side mirrors have a small rubber plug in the bottom center of the mirror housing. Remove the plug and there is a phillips head screw holding the mirror assembly. Tighten this screw about 1/8 turn and it will keep the mirror from moving around. If you remove the screw you can remove the mirror and drive motors. Use a bit of thread-lock to keep the screw from loosing again. Reinstall the rubber plug.

SOURCE: driver side mirror loose how can i tighten it

Most mirrors have a removable cover just on the inside of the door. If you look closely where the mirror meets the door on the inside should be a snap in place cover or three screw holes with snap in covers that you remove and then use a screwdriver or small socket wrench to tighten the screws or bolts.

Take off the trim directly behind it (inside of door). There will be mounting screws visible when you take off the trim.

Tighten them.

Thanks!!
