No.

If it bothers you, apply some Uhu Power adhesive to the interface between bulb and base when the tube is cold, then rub off the excess after a while as the glue sets.

I use silicone bathroom sealer. It's not usually a problem unless it moves far enough so that the wires can short.

Just make sure you pull it by the base, not the bottle. And hi-temp silicone (engine gasket) will give you peace of mind.
