You should only need to toe the pedal enough to close the brake light circuit,, not literally stand on the pedal to hold brakes firmly..
Stored vacuum over time has faded away, hence the firm pedal.. starting the engine creates vacuum for the booster assist, thus pedal feel soft... carry on, nothing to do for that. ---> shut engine off, push brake pedal a few times to dump stored vacuum.. now with firm pedal, apply toe pressure to pedal, and start engine while still riding pedal,, feel pedal sink/move freely with engine running,, manifold vacuum provides for assist.
