What do you mean by "not able to insert breakpoint"? Only by being
specific you can possibly get specific answers, too.
Note that if your webkit is a dynamically loaded library, gdb
potentially can't locate the symbols for your breakpoint. Also, make
sure you include the namespace WebCore when targetting a certain
function. In addition, check that the lib is built with the debug
symbol included (merely -g does not guarantee that).

As you agree, this is not a place for gdb tutorial so I'd just stop at
that. In case of further problems, I kindly suggest that you consult
someone who is more familiar with gdb and get some insights from him.

You just precisely describe what you have missed out. IOW, you did not
check RefPtr class, did you?
