Unhappy fixing door

I have an old wooden front door with beveled glass. The door will not stay shut because the little thingy that goes into the catch doesn't come out far enough to stay latched. As you can tell by my vocabulary of technical terms, I have no idea how to fix this

Does the latch or bolt come out far enough when the door is open? Is it hanging up just when the door is closed?

Check the screws in the top hinge. Tighten, if necessary.
