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.

You'll probably have to remove the sail panel (the triangular trim piece on the inside of the door which is positioned where the mirror base is). When you do that, you'll see that the mirror itself usually has studs that come through from the outside, and there are nuts on the inside that tighten down onto them to hold the mirror. Make sure that all the nuts are tight. If not, tighten them down.
What may have happened though, is that someone could've hit the mirror when you weren't around, and damaged something. It wouldn't always immediately sag or fall off, so it could've happened awhile back and you're just now seeing it.
Chances are though that the mounting nut/stud is the issue, and you'll be able to fix it this way.

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

To remove mirror pry off inside triangle panel(black) which exposes 3 nuts which are removed with socket wrench. Detach wire harness and pull out mirror assembly. To replace insert new mirror screws thru assigned holes and reconnect wire harness and tighten nuts to snug. Push inside triangle panel back into place and you're done! It's that easy.
