What does it mean to be a conductor?

A good conductor is a substance that will easily carry loose ions, also known as electricity. Many metals are good conductors. Conductors have many modern applications. Any wire that carries an electrical current has to be a conductor of some sort. On the contrary, substances that do not conduct electricity are known as insulators. Rubber is a very common insulator.

Is mercury a better conductor of heat than glass?

No, it is not. The best thermal conductor among the metals is silver, and it is the best electrical conductor as well. There is a general "rule" in the natural world that thermal and electrical conductivity are proportionate among metals; they "track" together. If a metal is a better thermal conductor than another metal, it will be a better electrical conductor as well. It should be noted that the best thermal conductor of all known materials is the allotrope of carbon we call diamond. Interestingly, diamond is an electrical insulator.
