"Assign to me" button in transition screens is no longer available in Jira 5.1.7

We just upgraded from Jira 5.0.2 to Jira 5.1.7 and the "Assign to me" button that used to be in the transition screen between states in a workflow is no longer available. No we have to type our names instead of a simple click. Has this feature been removed from Jira or is there a new way to set this up?

It seems this is a bug in Jira 5.1.7 and it will be fixed on Jira 5.2

Check if you have the Assign to me permission OR the sytem plugin

View Issue Ops Bar Assign To Me Link

module of Issue Operations Plugin is enabled.

@Mizan, I do have all those permissions as I am the Super Admin in our Jira instance.

Thanks!
