Just wondering if melting the original pads from inside the case with a flame would help to fix them in place for a little longer.

I’d be a little wary of doing something like that. I don’t think it would help the pads stay in place very much, but it might make it really hard to clean the case when you do want to replace the pads. If you want to make the original pads last a little longer you can try pulling them off, cleaning off the old adhesive, and applying some new tape or glue.
