Re-seating window gaskets

I have a couple of windows that look like this. Should I replace the gasket, just reseat it...

Suggestions? If I need a new glazing, where do I get that from?

I would replace that gasket. Looks like it may have released and shrunk May not be able to re-seat.
I am not sure, but I think those rubber gaskets don't require glazing?
Check Youtube
Never use silicone to seal anything. Windows should use glazing compound or plumber putty.

Those gaskets look look like the ones on my trailer; are the windows by Kimro? I just re-seated mine. I think what happens is that they shrink a bit, and then at the corners they no longer quite make the turn. As far as I can tell, those gaskets are for appearance only and being a bit too short is not a performance issue. They are very easy to re-seat.
