    get rid of \textit and $\sim$ and use \url from the url package then latex will be able to break the line at a / in a URL so will be able to justify the text more easily – David Carlisle Jan 26 '16 at 13:18

    I have re-tagged your question since it does not really seem to be about biblatex, but rather a more manual way to create the bibliography. An MWE would help us reproduce the actual error. Note that line breaking of URLs is always a very delicate matter (maybe even more so in the bibliography). – moewe Jan 26 '16 at 15:22
  • URLs in the bibliography are often quite difficult to handle. For some hints, see e.g. here, here or here. – hbaderts Jan 26 '16 at 15:24

I always set a bibliography with long URLs ragged right:

\usepackage{ragged2e}
...

{\RaggedRight
 \begin{thebibliography}{...}
 \bibitem{application 1}
    K. Conrad
    \url{http://www.math.uconn.edu/~kconrad/blurbs/gradnumthy/mordelleqn1.pdf} (accessed on 09/01/2016).
 ...
 \end{thebibliography}%
}

Or for a bib created by bibtex

\usepackage{ragged2e}
...

{\RaggedRight
 \bibliographystyle{...}
 \bibliography{...}%
}

or for biber

\usepackage{ragged2e}
\usepackage{biblatex}
\addbibresource{...}
...

{\RaggedRight
 \printbibliography[...]%
}
  • i changed to the ragged right format and its worked! thanks so much :) – Francesca Alsina Jan 26 '16 at 16:56
