Rubber seal coming off window frame - how to fix?

I was out camping last week and noticed that the rubber seals around several of my windows are coming away from the frame. The picture I have attached gives a good illustration of what is going on. It is only happening on one corner in each window.

I thought about using a flat screwdriver to try and push the rubber back down but I don't want to rip or tear the rubber. I think doing this while it is hot would be better so the rubber can move easier.

Anyone know of a tool that will help with this or of an easy way that I can push the rubber back to the frame?

The rubber is shrinking, so unless you glue it in place, it will probably not stay put. I would use a plastic spoon from the DW's kitchen to push it back in place.
Shrinking rubber window parts has always been an issue.
