If I had to wager a guess, interactions between molecules are determined by which molecules are present, and nothing changes there. However, their arrangement and ability to move freely does change.
I think the answer has to do with the extra energy that is put into the system when a solid becomes a liquid. Although the bonds within the system stay just as strong, the extra energy allows for bonds between particles to break and move freely.
