Not that I know of, but it wouldn't surprise me if there is one out there anyways. And keep in mind that ActiveX controls are breeding grounds for viruses, trojans, and other malwire.

There's an ActiveX plugin (dunno where) but you don't need ActiveX for Gmail. FireFox doesn't support ActiveX either.
You should upgrade to Opera 8 Beta1.
7.51 is outdated, they are currently at 7.54u2, but only Opera 8 B1 supports Gmail.
