You can switch between the floating and the managed layer with Mod-Space.
When you opened a floating window, you are in floating mode and any window
will spawn floated. Just Mod-Space before and it opens managed.

You can just send the window to managed mode by Mod-Shift-Space.

There is really nothing to fix here.
