Why can't I click back to the website I was just on?

Why do Facebook & Google prevent me from clicking backwards to see the website I just viewed?

I use IE9. Starting about 9 months ago I've found the back button has become increasingly useless. It just boomerangs me back to the website I'm on. Then, when I right-click on the back button to get my recent history, I see there are one or more google or facebook junk urls between the site I was on and the site I'm now on. I have to click on the correct url from among them, plucking a rose from the thorns. to get back to where I just was.
What gives? If I switch to Firefox or Chrome, will I no longer have this minor but constant irritant?
