Bugzilla bugs are read, but they aren't necessarily dealt with
instantly.  You can see actions occurring if you do a search for "all"
bugs, not just open ones.

The reason that your bugs haven't been dealt with is the simple
tautology that nobody has dealt with them.  It might be faster if you
find the patch and submit that, but even then there's no guarantee that
a volunteer will step forward to check it.
