Regarding the time it takes for the fire button to stop working is probably around 5 minutes, its not that random as its happened everytime, to a point where I can predict when its about to conk out. The fire buttons will intermittently operate but requires 10-20 clicks before I get a trigger. Once I power down and re-initiate the STe, it seems to work again for another 5 minutes, 2 games were tested. The cable plugging into the Atari is fixed using blu-tak (stops movement of the 9-pin connector which caused issues with my mouse originally but this is probably the cable).
It feels like a logic controller fault just because of the way it acts, similar to a floating gate, but the link you've provided will help me perform a proper diagnostic on this. It does seem like an unusual problem!
