Since I started using the latest version of adblock I'm finding myself accidentally clicking on invisible ads.
For example Yahoo TV listing Detail
There's an ad there in the middle of the page that I can get the image removed, but I can still click on the link accidentally. (I guess it depends on which kind of ad it is, sometimes it seems completely blocked).
Is there a way to stop those clicks from being processed.

In Adblock's pref-window, pop the options-menu and select 'Collapse Blocked Elements'.
.
This will slow page-render slightly, which is why it's default-disabled.

I don't see "Collapse Blocked Elements" anywhere, just an option for "Fast Collapse", should I untick that?

Yes- uncheck FastCollapse.
.
In the latest nightlies, the pref has been renamed (per above) and moved to the pref-window's options menu.

With the most recent build (#24, installed in both Mozilla and Firebird), it's not collapsing the blocked area(s) on that site, regardless of whether "Collapse Blocked Elements" is enabled or disabled. This is also happening on sites like GameFAQs and GameForms (which is odd, as IFrame-blocking was working properly there in the previous builds Confused).

(Heh...I've noticed I'm listing those two sites a lot - Of course, they're good sites for testing to see if IFrame blocking is working properly Laughing)
