I don't understand how to do a search in IE9.

Using it on my Tablet PC, I type(on screen keyboard, and no quotes) into the address bar "phone" and I hit a google search page with the results for phone. I type in "ferrari" and I get sent directly to the ferrari homepage. But if I didn't want the ferrari site itself, I click the back button, and I don't get sent to the google results, I get sent back to the New Tab page.
