I am trying to find where do webapps install after accepting them with Firefox. This can help me when I want to eliminate one of them or edit something.

I think it is already installes, You are just allowing it to execute –  Tachyons Nov 30 '12 at 0:29
    
This should answer your question about removing certain ones. You can view them in software center too. –  Seth Nov 30 '12 at 0:29

There are many ways to find this information.

1) You can find it by opening the .deb that installs them.

As an example, I pick the .deb of youtube's one from here: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/quantal/i386/unity-webapps-youtube/2.4.10 Open it with archive manager, then look for the file DEBIAN/md5sums and open it with a text editor. It is

a4b9f911211d21db51342de237b5dc5c  usr/share/doc/unity-webapps-youtube/copyright
c571c6d100d418b65bcacbb4f78d46d6  usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/unity-webapps-youtube.png

a7d678d599978f9ac7bffe36d776558c  usr/share/icons/unity-webapps-applications/64/apps/unity-webapps-youtube.png
58beafe67c7b136d0f157c963445c514  usr/share/unity-webapps/userscripts/unity-webapps-youtube/YouTube.user.js
5f8d5ce54c5a7c7c4cca88d5691beedd  usr/share/unity-webapps/userscripts/unity-webapps-youtube/manifest.json

This are the files installed with the webapp.

2) As an alternative you can use apt-file

By using simply

$ apt-file show unity-webapps-youtube 
unity-webapps-youtube: /usr/share/doc/unity-webapps-youtube/changelog.gz
unity-webapps-youtube: /usr/share/doc/unity-webapps-youtube/copyright
unity-webapps-youtube: /usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/unity-webapps-youtube.png
unity-webapps-youtube: /usr/share/icons/unity-webapps-applications/128/apps/unity-webapps-youtube.png
unity-webapps-youtube: /usr/share/icons/unity-webapps-applications/48/apps/unity-webapps-youtube.png
unity-webapps-youtube: /usr/share/icons/unity-webapps-applications/52/apps/unity-webapps-youtube.png
unity-webapps-youtube: /usr/share/icons/unity-webapps-applications/64/apps/unity-webapps-youtube.png
unity-webapps-youtube: /usr/share/unity-webapps/userscripts/unity-webapps-youtube/YouTube.user.js
unity-webapps-youtube: /usr/share/unity-webapps/userscripts/unity-webapps-youtube/manifest.json

3) You can achieve the same by using dpkg -L

Note that this will work only if the package is already installed.

Anyhow, I don't really know how you can use this informations to kill them ;)
