If you run ≤14.2, make a copy of the douninst.sh *before* uninstall:
cp /var/lib/pkgtools/douninst.sh/$PKGNAME-$VERSION-$ARCH-$BUILD$TAG .
Then simply run it as root after uninstall.
(If you forget it is not the end of the world, you will just potentially
leave behind a small file [libffmpeg.so] under /var/opt/vivaldi*)
