Sometimes, for instance, when i have a terminal and firefox open in the same workspace, and then i close the terminal, firefox will not tile properly, that is it won't take up the full screen, it will just remain taking only half the screen.

Is there a way to reload the window to make it tile properly or do i have to close and reopen each time?

You can try pressing mod+t (Usually corresponding to alt+t). According to the man page it

Push window back into tiling

That's a good way to refresh the tiling when there is problem with windows.
