I cannot begin to express how frustrating this change is... and I struggle to comprehend why anyone would introduce this by writing it into software, but I'm sure it has something to do with money and profits.

There was a time when you could do a search and get a list of results, and then view a specific listing, and then return to your search page and view another listing. however, those days are evidently gone, as now when you return to your search page, it's slightly different results in a different order. Most are there, but some are missing entirely, and the ones that remain are varied slightly. Whaaaat for!? It is truly a form of torture.

Now in fairness I can't tell if it's the browser (Firefox), or the search engine (Duck Duck Go), because I am unfortunately not a developer. However, whatever is causing it should be fixed out of a sense of social responsibility to the greater good.

If anyone knows why this happens and knows how to fix it, I would be sincerely grateful if you shared the solution.

Firefox usually caches pages if the server allows caching. If the server does not allow caching, then Firefox will re-fetch the page when you go Back and the server has an opportunity to update the page. I can't imagine that "organic" search results change that quickly, but I would not be surprised if the paid ads change every time.

It's extra work, but you could consider setting DDG to open results links in a new tab so you don't have to reload the results page by going back to it.
