In my .bib archive I have the next reference:

@misc{Quora,
    title = {In optimization, why is Newton's method much faster than gradient descent?},
    howpublished = {\url{https://www.quora.com/In-optimization-why-is-Newtons-method-much-faster-than-gradient-descent/}},
    note = {Accessed: 2015-06-07},
    author = {Carlin Eng}
}

and the result in the pdf is

enter image description here

I suppose that is for the long url "In-optimization-why-is-Newtons-method-much-faster-than-gradient-descent/" without any slashes.

I'm using \bibliographystyle{ieeetr}

It's simpler with biblatex, and its url and urlseen fields:

\documentclass[a4paper,twoside,11pt]{report}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{urltest.bib}
@misc{Quora,
title = {In optimization, why is Newton's method much faster than gradient descent?},
url = {https://www.quora.com/In-optimization-why-is-Newtons-method-much-faster-than-gradient-descent/},
urldate = {2015-06-07},
author = {Carlin Eng}
}
\end{filecontents}
\usepackage[backend = biber]{biblatex}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\DefineBibliographyStrings{english}{
urlseen = {accessed on}
}
\addbibresource{urltest.bib}

\begin{document}

\nocite{*}
\printbibliography

\end{document}
