That said, it would of course be better if document changes were not needed.
The problem really is an error in floatrow package which is declaring a box with
\newinsert rather than \newbox.

inserts are restricted to the classic tex registers below 256,  but
latex hardly uses inserts at all
(just two by default one for footnotes and one for \enlargethispage)
so the restriction
should not be a problem in practice,

Line 485 of floatrow.sty should be

\@ifdefinable\flrow at foot{\newbox\flrow at foot}


\@ifdefinable\flrow at foot{\newinsert\flrow at foot}

I'll see if I can contact the author.
