How can I randomize the tiles on my new tab page with sites from my bookmarks?

more options

Hello,

I like the new tab page with the tiles. I have it set as my homepage, in fact, so whenever I open Firefox for the day or click the Home button it takes me to a new tab page with tiles which are all from my bookmarks. I however like most of us have many bookmarks. I would like it if whenever I'd go to my new tab page the tiles would be randomized with sites from my bookmarks. For example, one tile could be devoted to my bookmark folder that has web comics. That way when I open the new tab page, that tile would always have a different web comic site displayed. I have not been able to find an extension that does this nor have I been able to find a way of modifying about:config to do this either. Is this possible? Thank you for any help.

I could not find an addon that changes the default behavior: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/tiles/

However there are some alternatives for randomizing bookmarks: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../?q=randomize+bookmarks&appver=35.0&platform=all

Thank you, guigs2. I have already seen and read the first link you mention. The second link is on the right-track but I am looking to have that randomization on my tile page. The first two extensions randomize what bookmark opens up but it does not give you that within the tile page itself. Thank you again for the suggestions though.
