I'm having the same issue. From what I can tell it did indeed crop up immediately after the 8/23 Thursday Patch.
To reiterate the OP, previous to the aforementioned patch I could click and hold to repeatedly fire a ground weapon, but it now requires an individual click for each shot and it doesn't seem limited to specific weapon types. A few others I've checked with are seeing the same behavior.
I would dearly love to see this behavior fixed/reverted to the previous method, because being able to click+hold to fire made ground combat feel much less tedious.

Am experiencing the same issue...although the issue seems to have a variable penetrance...some people don't seem to have the issue at all...I restored all controls to default..that didn't help. Please fix this asap.
II've been playing almost 19 months now and I have never ever ever seen this function work on ground combat LOL Would be funny to see if it would just fire primary weapon power or both and how it would work with stf's with assimilation or if it would not fire until you remodulate lol.
