Description:
All blob columns on Workbench can typically be viewed through the Editor window. On Linux (Ubuntu 14.04) trying to open the editor results in nothing appearing, and this is printed to the console:

(mysql-workbench-bin:5230): glibmm-CRITICAL **: 
unhandled exception (type Glib::Error) in signal handler:
domain: gdk-pixbuf-error-quark
code  : 3
what  : Unrecognized image file format

To the best of my knowledge, it is textual (ASCII) information that is inside the cell that I am viewing.

How to repeat:
Create a table with a BLOB column
Insert a row with textual information for the column
Save
Right-click on the cell in Workbench
Open Value in Editor
Nothing happens.

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Workbench 6.2.2 release, and here's the changelog entry:

On Linux, the BLOB columns were not viewable in the query results editor.

Thank you for the bug report.
