Even though it doesn't specifically say on the pail it can be used for glass mosaic, it should really be fine, since they have a mesh backing and won't be getting much wear and tear.

I just scanned my previous post and have a change to make - I said you might want a product such as Grout Once. I didn't realize you had some stone tiles in there. I would recommend a standard sealer such as Miracle 511 with the stone tiles. Put one coat on the stone tiles before grouting, and after grouting put a coat over everything. (Obviously it won't soak into the glass, but just wipe it all up after soaking into the grout and stone.)

I asked the question to Custom Building Products, and this is what they answered:
Thank you for your interest in Custom Building Products. It is recommended to follow the tile manufacturers recommendation. Customís Glass Tile Mortar is a very white latex modified thin-set, it is available at Home Depot.
Mastics will bond your Mosaic Tile. However they can turn glass tile yellow and discolor some types of stone.
If you require further assistance please, let me know.
Looks like the only risk is discoloration???
What do you guys think?
Not having to do the mix is a big plus for me........

Just to be more clear, mastics won't turn your glass yellow. What they will do is yellow themselves over time, showing through the glass.

You should be. It would be different if you were using a porous natural material such as marble. Glass is impervious and can't absorb anything.
