I noticed that Opera seems to look alot like Chromium/Chrome. Did you try Chromium to see if it's more to your liking?

Otherwise, I guess you're stuck deciding which is more important to you, Opera or the scanner support. It's too bad that Opera doesn't have a flatpak version.

 guess you could try running the Windows version of Opera using WINE  but no idea how well that will work.

Not much of an issue, with having to use Firefox instead of Opera, when I do have the scanning working on the Kodak 5250.
I only use this desktop computer occasionally, to use the attached ptinter/scanner.

Also of note, the Simple Scan software works faster/better than the Kodak scanner software, running under Windoz! :-)
