Try using smaller files, I had the same problem as you, until I noticed my thumbnail images where 120kb each. I edited them with photoshop and saved them to smaller files with a max of 40kb. Now they load way faster and they stay visible when scrolling up and down.
Note: If anyone is interested in using the template for this thumbnail, I can't take credit for creating it but you can find the original author and the template here: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?p=15567629#post15567629

I used a photoshop file I found here: http://manicho.deviantart.com/art/DVD-Plastic-Case-PSD-file-86546288 I made all of my covers to look like these:
I'm working on one for my TV shows now. Old time TV set rather than dvd case.
Like you had described, my thumbnails are right around 100k [like 85 - 120k] and I'm also experiencing slow loading of the thumbs. I'll try a few as non-transparent jpgs which should be closer to 40k and see if that helps.
Nice job Ron (and Manicho)! I like the clean look of your template and might suggest that you create a second template for Blurays simply by replacing the Standard DVD disc with a Bluray version. That's also what the author of the template that I posted previously did. He created a Bluray and a SD version of his template here:

That distinction is a nice visual indicator when you are scrolling thru your movies...
Some folks who frequent that AVSforum thread I posted previously are now submitting their movie thumbnail collections on flickr, so others who either don't know Photoshop and/or don't have the time to create their own can use for their video library. They are also doing some work there on thumbnails for Folders. Check it out...
Edit: Just a reminder that folder thumbnails are not supported by the PS3.
