Back button not working after linking to new page from a new tab

I often use the facility to highlight a word or phrase on a webpage and then right click and "Search Google for question". This opens a new tab with the search results. I will then click on a result, which opens that page in the same tab. If I want to go back to the search results, the Back button does not work (greyed out). I have to go to history to find the search results again. How can I fix this?
