The question is: what type of PDF is this? When you get this message you are trying to open an atypical PDF. For example an XFA forms technology based PDF. Where does this PDF come from and what is it for? Is it an electronic form?

What you're seeing it the Shell-PDF of an dynamic PDF form (aka XFA form). This happens because you're using a PDF viewer, which doesn't support the dynamic contents of this particular PDF.

You'll have to use Adobe Acrobat Reader/Acrobat 8 or newer. Safari or Apple Preview are not useful for this purpose.
