I don't think it would, but I only installed Opera to prove on my system
whether or not Opera was catching the plugin. I think it's one of the
worst browsers in existence (next to IE).

I installed the icetea-web plugin after I installed Firefox and haven't
touched it since then except for updates. I absolutely didn't issue a
single command except to launch Opera after I installed it. So when I 
say I just installed Opera, that is all I literally did.

Check ~/.opera/pluginpath.ini

this is what mine looks like

I have no idea if Opera catches any of these paths, these are the 
defaults upon install.
