The caveat is that I am very much a newbie at this. What happens to your computer's performance if you uninstall Opera? Does it go back to normal? You can easily reinstall Opera later from the repository if you decide you would like to try it again.

I have never done this on Linux. On the Windows version, uninstalling the program itself does not uninstall the profile along with it. The behavior in Ubuntu is likely to be the same. However, with the program gone, the interactions with other programs should be gone as well irrespective of whether the profile is there. Regarding Flash, so far, I have had no problems with Flash, but the machine I have used most extensively does not have Opera on it either...
