That's a good question, and the answer varies from woman to woman.
Yes, they will become smaller than when you were pregnant or nursing; in fact they'll probably go back to your pre-pregnancy size.
But if you gained a lot of weight during your pregnancy, and don't lose it all by the time you wean the baby, your breasts may be larger than they were before you got pregnant. (The size of your breasts depends on the amount of fatty tissue.) On the other hand, if you weigh less than you did before getting pregnant, then after weaning your breasts will be smaller than they used to be.
Whether they'll be "less firm" after you wean depends on the individual. They'll certainly be softer than when you were breastfeeding, but probably about as dense as they were before you got pregnant. Remember that time and gravity take their toll on all parts of our bodies, and as we get older, we tend to sag a little bit all over.
