The problem is cupspdf has turned the images into Type 3 fonts. The cairo
output from poppler does not support Type 3 fonts with color images and it
would not be easy to fix.

I'm not sure if the PDF standard allows Type 3 fonts with color images. The
fact that acroread also fails to render the images in this file suggests this
is either not permitted or a corner case that no one uses.

I suggest using the builtin PDF writing capability of firefox (print to file in
the print dialog). It produces a smaller better quality PDF and unlike the
cupspdf output the text can be copied and pasted from the PDF.
