Visor vanity mirror falling out of visor... how to fix?

The subject describes my problem: my driver's side vanity mirror has loosened to the point where it will fall out if I move the visor against the windshield.

It fell out once already, revealing some old looking glue, and some equally old foam that fills the sunvisor.

My question is, what is the best way to repair it? I don't want to use a glue that will dissolve the foam inside the visor.

Has anyone successfully repaired one of these?
Any help appreciated. Thanks, Bob

Moraine, thanks for the reply. I will look for plastic-safe epoxy. I had a feeling that I had to look for something that was safe for plastics in order to avoid a 4 year search for a new one

I have had a lot of experiences with various adhesives dissolving plastics, and I don't want to repeat the experience if I can avoid it at all.

Thanks again, Bob
