It can be easily disabled There's a tickbox (ticked by default) in its options.

Basically, what does IE View do that IE View Lite doesn't?

Only the adware.
Apparently 1.5.5 added this adware. 1.5.1 does not have it.
The original author of IE View (Paul Roub) does not own/support it anymore, but mentions that IE View Lite is based on the (open) source. IE View Lite does not have the adware.

In my opinion:
1) Mozilla should CLEARLY mark add-ons that contain adware in their Add-Ons store. Don't allow authors to bury it in a privacy statement.
2) When an existing add-on is updated to include adware, the automatic updater MUST pop up a notification to the user stating that it now includes adware and offering to cancel the install and even offer to uninstall or disable.
