After the file is downloaded, double-click on it to open it in the desktop program.
At this time, it is not possible to add shared decks directly to your AnkiWeb account - they need to be added from the desktop then synchronized to AnkiWeb.
This is a very frustrating list. This is not how Anki should work! Contains only pairs of words. No tags, no other fields. In English many words are adjectives, nouns and verbs at the same time (e.g. "light" has three notes, one with "éclairer", one with "lumière" and one with "léger" but there is no way of knowing what is what). You need to include this information in a set or reviewing will be pointless and learning impossible.
At the very least I recommend for anyone just copying the list on https://duolinguist.wordpress.com/2015/01/06/top-5000-words-in-french-wordlist/ and pasting it into excel/libre calc and saving as .csv and then importing into Anki.
Anyway, lists like this are a reason that people turn away from Anki quickly because they don't see the point in it...
